Enchilada Casserole

This is a slow cooker meal that I will be making often, it was delicious and very easy to switch up depending on what you like or have on hand.


3 tablespoons diced green chiles, divided
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (11-ounce) can corn with red and green peppers, drained
1 (10-ounce) can enchilada sauce
1/2 cup egg substitute
1 (8 1/2 ounce) package corn muffin mix
2 tablespoons chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Mexican blend or cheddar cheese
6 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons thinly sliced fresh cilantro


1. Place 2 tablespoons green chiles and next 6 ingredients (through enchilada sauce) in a 3 1/2-quart electric slow cooker; stir well. Cover with lid; cook on low-heat setting 4 hours.
2. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon green chiles, egg substitute, muffin mix, and roasted bell peppers in a bowl. Spoon batter evenly over bean mixture in slow cooker. Cover and cook 1 hour or until corn bread is done.
3. Sprinkle cheese over corn bread. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Top each serving with sour cream; sprinkle with cilantro.

You will need some sour cream, cornbread mix, green chiles, roasted red peppers, black beans, green onion, enchilada sauce, salsa, mexicorn, eggs or egg substitute and cheese. Sounds like a winning combo already.

Drain your beans.

spread the corn bread mixture over top
Spread it over the top, this is a little tricky but it doesn't have to be absolutely perfect.

cover it for about a half hour
Say goodbye again for about 20 minutes, then you want to sprinkle the cheese over the top and cover for a few minutes. I was so excited to try this that I forgot this step!

Enchilada Casserole
I managed to get the cheese on before serving with a nice dollop of sour cream on top. This was SO tasty, I cannot wait to make it again. You can add chicken, pork, beef, whatever else you may like to change it up.
