  • 1 can red enchilada sauce
  • 1 can green enchilada sauce
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 tbs cumin
  • 1 tbs coriander
  • 1 tbs chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 Tbs garlic powder
  • 1 can whole kernel corn
  • 1 can black beans
  • 2 can diced tomatoes Or 3-4 cups of fresh diced tomatoes


  • sour cream
  • avocado
  • cheese
  • chips


  • In a slow cooker set to cook on low for 8-10 hours add in tomatoes, beans (undrained), corn (undrained), and half of each can of enchilada sauce.
  • Mix the spices together and add half to the slow cooker
  • Cook your chicken in a skillet over medium heat with the remaining enchilada sauce and spices. You can just let it simmer until it is cooked through.
  • Shred chicken (I do this by putting it in my Kitchen Aid mixer with the Paddle attachment, set to 2-3, and let it run for 30 seconds to a minute)
  • Add chicken and pan sauces to crock pot and let cook for 8-10 hours so flavors can meld
  • Serve with garnishments and enjoy


You can let the chicken cook in the slow cooker with everything else, and then shred right before serving if you wish. I prefer to cook and shred first so that each little bit of chicken gets a ton of flavor in it. But cooking the chicken in the slow cooker with everything else will save dishes and time!
