I love a nice hearty meal! We’ve been cutting down on takeaways this year and experimenting more at home. During the colder months I love to put the slow cooker on in the morning. The pot helps to keep my kitchen warm and the lovely smells fill my home. I’ve made slow cooker beef enchilada mix in my slow cooker a few times, and I love that you can adapt the recipe to whatever ingredients you have in!

Method for slow cooker beef enchiladas

This step is optional. Brown your mince. My multi-cooker has a saute function so I use this. If you want to save time you CAN skip this step and just put the raw mince in to the pot.

Season the mince with salt and pepper.

Add your chopped red pepper and red onion.

Add your drained beans, chopped tomatoes, spice mix and dried coriander.

Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours. You can leave longer on low if needed.

Filled your enchiladas and load them, seam side down, on an oiled baking tray or oven dish.

Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top.

Cook at gas mark 6 (200C) for 10 minutes until golden brown on the outside.

What spices to use for beef enchiladas?

I often follow the above recipe but I have also just mixed together eyeballed quantities of plain flour, chilli powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and oregano. This works really well, and I love to add some coriander too for extra flavour!

What spices to use for chicken enchiladas?

For chicken enchiladas I like to use a spice mix that contains plain flour, chipotle chilli flakes, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, oregano and coriander. I also add cayenne on the days I want to give my recipe an extra punch!

Want to turn down the heat of your enchiladas a little?

Just stir through some sour cream or natural (unflavoured!) yoghurt. This is a great way to cool down a recipe if you’ve overdone it on the spice a little and it adds a nice richness to it.
