  1. Crumble turkey into a large skillet over medium heat. Stir onion, bell pepper, and garlic into the turkey. Cook and stir until turkey is completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the kidney beans, black beans, diced tomatoes, water, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, place a cover on the skillet, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Mix Cheddar cheese and Monterey jack cheese together in a bowl.
  3. Layer about 3/4 cup of the turkey mixture, 1 tortilla, and 1/2 cup the cheese mixture in the bottom of a 5-quart slow cooker; repeat layers until ingredients are fully used, ending with a cheese layer.
  4. Cook on Low until heated through, 5 to 7 hours.

I made sure to spray the bottom of my crockpot before I layered in the enchilada ingredients. Instead of water, I used enchilada sauce and I layered a little on the bottom of the crockpot before starting with the tortilla layer (I wanted to start with the tortilla on the bottom as to have a sturdy bottom when I went to remove it from the crockpot) and a little over the top when I ended with the tortilla/cheese. I served this with mexican rice and refried beans. Not a bad dinner but I think this would have turned out better had I just baked it in the oven. It was a lot of work trying to layer it in the crockpot for a "quick" dinner for me.


I tried this recipe the other day and it was REALLY good. The photo I added is before I had put it in the crock pot. I suggest adding a little more water while it is cooking because it was pretty dry when it was done.

I also greased my crock pot. I followed the recipe as written and my entire family loved it. I heated up a spicy chipotle sauce and a roasted Pasilla chile sauce and served them in little bowls on the side letting everyone choice there own heat level. Mom liked it as is and so did I but I also enjoyed it with mild and smoky flavor of the chile sauce. Bill went for the spice. I served this with greens and bacon. As I said everyone enjoyed this dish very much.
