Crockpotalooza: Enchilada Casserole

I am doing a link up at Kelly's Korner Blog for crock pot recipes.  My recipe is not mine but it is a favorite.  I have a six year old and a three year old and it passes the test.  I serve it with a spinach salad.  Go here or see below:

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 1 cup casserole, 1 tablespoon sour cream, and 1/4 teaspoon cilantro)


  • 3 tablespoons diced green chiles, divided
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained (I use 2)
  • (11-ounce) can corn with red and green peppers, drained
  • (10-ounce) can enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute (I just use 2 eggs)
  • (8 1/2 ounce) package corn muffin mix
  • 2 tablespoons chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Mexican blend or cheddar cheese
  • 6 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons thinly sliced fresh cilantro


  • 1. Place 2 tablespoons green chiles and next 6 ingredients (through enchilada sauce) in a 3 1/2-quart electric slow cooker; stir well. Cover with lid; cook on low-heat setting 4 hours.
  • 2. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon green chiles, egg substitute, muffin mix, and roasted bell peppers in a bowl. Spoon batter evenly over bean mixture in slow cooker. Cover and cook 1 hour or until corn bread is done.
  • 3. Sprinkle cheese over corn bread. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Top each serving with sour cream; sprinkle with cilantro.
