How is this any faster than regular oven enchiladas? I'll probably try it for something different, but when I see "slow cooker", I want to be able to cook it while I'm at work or away for the day. 1 hour is not "slow cooker".

I'm not a big fan of canned soup, but come on, it's an option, and if you're so good you can afford to complain about a short cut, you're good enough to modify it to your taste/dietary needs.

I don't think it is fair to criticize something you've neither eaten or made but it is your right to express yourself. I have just made this for dinner this evening according to recipe except I added some onion and made my own taco seasoning. I tasted the filling and it was good and once it is cooked I suspect it will be even better once the favors meld. I will probably exclude the soup next time to see if I can change it up and think I will make a cheese sauce with a tiny can of enchilada sauce added with sautéed onion,peppers and mushrooms in lieu of the soup. I will probably add a bit of lowfat cream cheese, make the sauce with skim milk and still sprinkle a bit of grated cheese on each layer to make it stick together. I might even add some beans for texture. There are ways to make it without the soup let your imagination work for you.

AGREED! It's time to move out of the 50's.

I guess canned soup, creamed and other wise , has it's place in recipes occasionally but what ever fits your lifestyle. I use it for a fabulous broccoli, rice and cheese casserole I make for Thanksgiving every year and it's always devoured. To each his/her own, I say.

Its a very good idea. I am sure its allowed to modify the recipe as needed to suit your oh so discriminating tastes! But I guess if you are that fragile, you might want to be very careful!

Ciarolla both perform basically same function. Crock-Pot is a brand name but can refer to any ceramic crock that fits inside a heating element. A slow cooker usually is metal with a heating element you can brown or cook on independently of the "pot" the pot can also sit on heating surface to slow cook ingredients. Above recipe is best in a crock pot type .. Hope this helps

Sounds good to me! What would you put in instead of the canned soup?

OMG!! Does this look scrumptious. I first have a question and I hope I don't look/sound too stupid for asking. Is there a difference between a 'slow cooker' and a 'crock-pot'? Hopefully there's more member's that were too embarrassed to ask. Forgive me if it's already been 'asked' and 'answered', but I gotta know if I'm gonna be a success at trying these recipes. Thanks and I'll watch for an answer.

This dish came out AMAZING!! All my family loved it and I will definitely be making it again. You shouldn't even be allowed to comment on here if you haven't made the actual recipe. This is not a complaining board and only helpful posts should be submitted. I highly recommend this and in my slow cooker it only took 3 hours on high!
