Ranch Chicken Enchilada Casserole {Crockpot}

May 20, 2013

Who doesn't love a good enchilada casserole recipe? I know, I pretty much pin every one I come across! Usually they're smothered in enchilada sauce, red or green, and baked with lots of cheese. Super yummy, am I right? This one is a bit different because it starts in the Crockpot. Plan ahead and throw the chicken in the pot before work, when you come home just assemble and bake - easy and absolutely delicious! 

This recipe in its easiest form uses packet taco and ranch seasoning mixes, but if you're watching your salt intake I definitely recommend replacing with homemade versions of both. 

Ranch Chicken Enchilada Casserole {Crockpot}
adapted from Mom's Crazy Cooking

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 packet taco seasoning
1 packet ranch dressing mix
4 flour tortillas (burrito size)
1 cup ranch dressing
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
cilantro or parsley to garnish, if desired

Place chicken in slow cooker and sprinkle seasoning mixes over top. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Shred chicken with two forks and stir to evenly distribute juices and seasonings. In the bottom of a 9x13 baking pan, cover the bottom with two tortillas. Spread half of shredded chicken on tortillas, then 1/2 cup ranch dressing drizzled, and top with 1 cup shredded cheese. Repeat layers once more. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and lasagna is heated through. Serve with additional ranch dressing as desired.
