Have you ever made your own Taco Seasoning?

I’m using my favorite Homemade Taco Seasoning recipe in this easy enchilada casserole.  I use this seasoning in most of my crockpot enchiladas recipes.

You can use one taco seasoning package, but I would like to challenge you to make your own taco seasoning. It tastes great and is hardly any work. I bet you already have everything to make it!

My homemade taco seasoning recipe is probably one of my all time favorite recipes on my site!  I love it and I promise it’s not hard to make at all.

How to make this Crock pot Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe:

  1. First cook the chicken.  I boiled the chicken until cooked through. Shred using a stand-up or hand mixer.
  2. Then slice the corn tortillas into quarters each using a large knife or pizza cutter. They will be in triangles. You can skip this step but it makes cutting into the casserole easier.
  3. Next in a large bowl, combine your chicken with the taco seasoning and rotel and mix well. Set aside.
  4. Spray the inside of your crock pot casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Pour a little enchilada sauce on the bottom of your pan, then start your layering.
  6. Cover the bottom of the pan with tortillas (you don’t have to cover every single gap). Top the tortillas with the shredded chicken mixture. Pour enchilada sauce over the chicken.
  7. Top with shredded cheese.
  8. Continue layering tortillas, chicken, sauce, and cheese.
  9. You should have enough chicken for about 3 full layers. Finish the casserole off with a layer of tortillas, the rest of the enchilada sauce and cheese.
  10. Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours or cook on high for 1-2 hours until the ingredients are heated through.
  11. Cut and serve with sour cream, tomatoes, cilantro and onions.

Can you use frozen chicken to create this recipe?

Generally I don’t make frozen chicken crock pot enchiladas, I find that it’s best to use cooked chicken for this recipe as the tortillas will get too soft if cooked too long in the crock pot and additional time would be needed to cook the frozen chicken in the crock pot. 

However, I have boiled frozen chicken before and it works great to create the cooked chicken breasts needed for this easy enchilada recipe.

  1. 5 stars
    I used boneless chicken thighs, red enchilada sauce, & used the oven instead of my crockpot (350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes). It turned out delish!

  2. I find that the flour tortillas get mushy in the crock pot so I prefer the corn tortillas for this recipe. Thanks!

  3. This is a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies. Rotel is a popular brand name for this. Thank you.

  4. I think that red enchilada sauce is slightly spicer but neither are too spicy in my opinion.

  5. I’m not sure as I haven’t tried it in an air fryer yet. If you try it out, please let us know how it goes!
