Today's my birthday, and chances are I'll be eating dinner tonight at my favorite Mexican restaurant.  But if you're not going out for Mexican food, I think these Slow Cooker Chicken Enchiladas from Skinny Ms. sound like a wonderful Mexican meal at home.  This recipe starts with two chicken breasts that you cook in the oven, but if you have some pre-cooked shredded chicken, you could certainly use that.

Ingredients for this CrockPot Recipe:
  • bone-in chicken breasts
  • red enchilada sauce in a jar (or homemade enchilada sauce, recipe included)
  • canned green chiles
  • garlic powder
  • cumin
  • chili powder
  • black pepper
  • shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
  • fat free sour cream
  • whole wheat tortillas (or homemade whole grain tortillas recipe included)
