Many of you tell us that you love using your slow cooker in the summer. We agree! It is a great way to avoid a hot kitchen and still serve a full meal to your family for dinner without spending a lot of time and effort.
These enchiladas are great for summertime. You prepare the main part of the dish (the beef) in your slow cooker, and then assemble the rest of the dish whenever you want. You can even make this a picnic lunch, assembling all of the components when you arrive at your picnic destination.
The recipe calls for cans of chilies, but for a bit more kick, add some fresh chilies from your garden. Use your discretion, of course, since fresh chilies are usually spicier than the canned varieties!
