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.  In the summertime and I don’t know about you but I don’t usually want to run my oven if I don’t have to and I love using my Crock pot then.  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!

I place in 1 pound ground beef in my crock pot and break it up.  If I’m in a hurry, I’ll throw it in frozen.  If you do throw it in frozen, just come back about 1-2 hours later and break up the meat inside and stir it.

Add 1 can tomato sauce, 1 can cream of chicken soup, and 1 can green chili sauce.  You can substitute things like cream of mushroom/celery, enchilada sauce, etc.  Add beans, sour cream, and any additional touches you’d like.

Add 1 cup of shredded cheese and stir.  Put the lid on and cook on low for 4-5 hours.

Here is what it looks like when it’s all done – yum!

Serve in bowls and top with crushed tortilla chips.

  • 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

    • 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.

  • 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.

    • 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.

  • another person who uses the crockpot in the summer… i’m just learning of this phenomenon… hmmm

    • 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.

  • 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!
