Variations:

  • Enchilada Sauce – You can also use green enchilada sauce instead of red enchilada sauce if you prefer. 
  • Change Taquitos – We used Chicken Taquitos for this recipe but steak or cheese taquitos would also work great.  Beef enchiladas is also a delicious option.
  • Cheese – Change the cheese to what you prefer. You can easily use a Mexican blend cheese or add pepper jack cheese for a kick to your enchiladas.

Taquito Enchiladas Tips:

  • Cheese – We recommend shredding the cheese from hunk cheese. It melts better and taste better on these enchiladas.
  • Cooking Spray – For an easy cleanup, we recommend spraying the slow cooker with cooking spray to prevent the taquitos from sticking.
  • Baking Dish – You can easily make this 3 ingredient enchilada in the oven. Prepare as indicated and bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees.
  • Beef Taquitos – I love that you can change the taquitos to different flavors of meat. Add the beef taquitos, enchilada sauce and cheese to the slow cooker and cook.

How to Store Leftovers:

Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.  When you are ready to reheat the enchiladas, we recommend reheat in the air fryer. This will give the taquitos that crispy texture.

What to Serve with Taquito Enchiladas:

You can easily serve these Lazy Enchiladas as a game day appetizer or as a weeknight meal.

  • Toppings – We recommend serving with sour cream, black olives, guacamole, and salsa.
  • Green Salad – When I make these enchiladas I like to serve with a side of green salad.
  • Beans – Add a side of refried beans or black beans for an amazing side dish.
  • Rice – Make a side of Spanish rice or white rice for a tasty side dish.

    The flavor was amazing. Though some parts were still slightly cold and some fell apart. I might add kidney and black beans and onions next time for more texture. But overall it was a good dish not perfect but would definitely male again

    Just had this for dinner tonight. And it was a total hit! Used a combination of beef and chicken toquitos with green enchilada sauce. I did use more cheese and did add sliced black olives. I think next time I fix this I’ll add more enchilada sauce because to me there wasn’t enough sauce, or, I’ll heat some on the side and just use it as a dipping sauce. Thank you for a great quick and easy dinner!
