Slow-Cooker Layered Enchilada Dinner

The secret to this creamy, slow-cooked casserole is simple canned soup, extra cheese, and smooth enchilada sauce.

Prep Time



Total Time






lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
small onion, chopped (about 1/3 cup)
clove garlic, finely chopped
can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup
can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso® chopped green chiles
can (10 oz) Old El Paso® enchilada sauce
corn tortillas (6 inch)
cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (12 oz)
Chopped fresh cilantro
  1. In 10-inch skillet, cook ground beef, onion and garlic over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in soup and chiles.
  2. Spray 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Spread about 1/4 cup of the enchilada sauce in bottom of slow cooker. Place 4 corn tortillas over sauce, overlapping and breaking in half as necessary to make an even layer. Top with 1/3 of beef mixture, spreading evenly. Drizzle with about 1/4 cup enchilada sauce. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese.
  3. Repeat layering twice, using 3 corn tortillas and half of remaining beef mixture, enchilada sauce and cheese in each layer. Sprinkle paprika over top.
  4. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 4 hours 30 minutes to 5 hours 30 minutes.
  5. Let stand about 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle individual servings with cilantro.

Instead of cream of mushroom soup, try cream of broccoli or cream of celery soup.
While the enchiladas finish cooking, bake up a batch of cornbread. For a salad, toss together leaf lettuce, diced avocado, mandarin orange slices and a favorite dressing.
