Crockpot Enchiladas

I found this recipe at Heritage Schoolhouse (here). I'm not sure if it's because I used burrito sized tortillas but mine looks NOTHING like her's as I'll show you later.

I really didn't tweak this one very much since I wanted to stay as close as I could to the original. As I said earlier I used burrito sized tortillas and as I'm reading the recipe in my kitchen I get to the part where she says you may have to overlap to do two I laughed. There was no way I was going to fit two in my crockpot. Just one folded up on the sides. It's what I had so I just went with it.

The other HUGE mistake I made was to use way too much enchilada sauce. The only can I could find could have doubled this recipe (shows how much I pay attention). I also couldn't find enchilada sauce at Aldis so we had to go to Target as well and the can I found was double what I needed (which of course I didn't realize till after I poured the whole thing in).

I used light red kidney beans as my "ranch style beans" and they tasted pretty good in it. We did also toss lettuce and tomatoes on top, I would have done some sour cream too but we were out.

Overall it was pretty good, S even had 3 helpings! The taste of enchilada sauce was pretty overwhelming for me so I think next time I would pay more attention to the amount that I need to put in.

As you can see there is a BIG difference between mine and the original recipe (on the right).
