WAY better than the restaurants and WAY better for you!!! Sometimes we forget that we can use the crockpot all year round and it’s not just for the cooler months. These enchiladas are GREAT to make on the weekend for a meal prep recipe, to enjoy a couple nights during the week!

The house is going to smell amazing and everyone will LOVE them!

Happy Cooking!♥️
