Enchilada Casserole in the Crock Pot

We love any kind of Tex-Mex recipes around this house. Tacos, Enchiladas, Burritos, Quesadillas, etc.  Anything with a little spice and a lot of cheese and we are bought in.  This Enchilada Pie grabbed my attention for two reasons, 1) crock pot (easy!) and 2) corn muffin mix (I love it!).  It was a big hit.  We all ate our servings and even had enough to pass on to my sister-in-law.  It is a vegetarian friendly recipe too!  I must say it isn’t the prettiest dish you will ever make, but it totally makes up for it in flavor!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup canned diced fire roasted green chilies (divided)

Combine the rest of the green chilies, egg substitute, muffin mix, and cheese in a bowl.  Spread the batter evenly over the bean mixture in the crock pot.  Cover and cook for one more hour, or until the bread is done.
