I love my Crock-pot!  I have had friends call me the Crock-pot queen.  If I can figure out how to make something in a Crock-pot, I will.  I don’t know about you, but in the summertime I don’t usually want to run my oven if I don’t have to and so my Crock pot comes in handy.  During the school year I’m always running kids everywhere as well as working, etc so I love my Crock-pot to have meals ready when we need them.  Today I ‘m sharing Crock-pot Enchilada Stew!

    Sounds delicious, my friend! I, too, LOVE to use my slow cooker in the summer and tonight’s supper was made in…yep, you guessed it…my slow cooker 🙂 I will definitely have to try this recipe sometime soon.

    I hope you are well and enjoying your summer. Ours is already going by way too fast! We have been doing a lot of work on our house hence the reason I have disappeared from blogging. Later this week I am taking my nephews and nieces to the hot springs and oh, I can’t wait to simply play in the water and relax.

    Have a wonderful 4th of July! Hugs to you! Stephanie-The Enchanting Rose

    1. It is so good to hear from you Stephanie, I was just thinking about you yesterday – how funny is that! I’m so glad you like your crockpot as much as I do. I can totally relate to a busy summer and I am so glad to hear you are taking a day to do something fun. Love those hot spring!!! Happy 4th to you and sending you hugs back.

  2. Mmmmm that looks good! For some reason, I don’t think to use my crock pot in the summer. I think because it’s on my counter and it spreads heat. This really does look good though. Maybe I’ll pull it out of my pantry and fire it up just to try this. 🙂 We tend to use the grill or have a cold meal in the summer.

    1. Thanks Linda, it works especially well for those days you have to go out and want to come back with the meal ready any time of year of course 😉 For us it helps on dance or baseball nights. Or just when we’re out having fun in the summer and want to come home and everything is ready.

    1. Thanks it’s so great to use it in the summer so you don’t have to start your oven. Plus I love how it allows you to go do fun things with the kids and when you get home dinner is ready.

  3. Recipe sounds delish! Thank you for sharing on Merry Monday! Hope to see ya next week!

    I have recently downsized from a house to a lovely apt. The floor plan is very open and the kit. is exposed to the living area. I cannot close off the cooking area, and heat from kit. warms the whole area, which kicks off the (expensive) ref. air unit.

    My solution to the problem of summer kit. heat and cooking indoors was to set up an outside kit.! I put my crock pot, insta pot,toaster oven, and electric grill on a folding table in the fenced in porch area! The only thing I am missing is a hot plate.

    Saving A/C cost and cooking simple summer meals!

    1. I love this Linda, what a great idea! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  5. Chas, this sounds yummy and of course you are the crockpot queen! There are so many things you can do with cream of chicken soup, right? Thanks for sharing. I’m excited to try this!

    1. Thank you Mary for the kind words and the giggle. You are so sweet and I love that you want to try it.

  6. Oh Yummmm – that looks fabulous! Perfect for our chilly day today. I’m going to check to see if we have the ingredients for it. Thanks for the Saturday dinner inspiration! 😉

    1. Thank you, Barbara, I’m thrilled you want to give it a try and let me know what you think.
