Crock Pot Tequila Lime Chicken Enchilada Stacks

Well, that title was a mouthful! I've never made enchiladas in the crock pot before but if something can be made in the crock pot then I definitely want to try it! The original recipe was for traditional enchiladas cooked in the crock pot. I however was in the mood for lime chicken so I tweaked the recipe to accommodate my tastes. Let me tell you, these were some of the best enchiladas I have ever had. Mr. Husband agreed. I can't wait to make them again!

Crock Pot Tequila Lime Chicken Enchilada Stacks
Serves 6
Cal 280, Fat 9.6g, Carbs 24g, Fiber 4g, Protein 28.1

3 cups cooked and shredded chicken (about 3 large chicken breasts)
Tequila Lime Chicken Marinade Packet (I used Weber Grill)
Juice of one lime
1 can diced green chilies
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I used reduced fat mexican 5 cheese)
1 can enchilada sauce
6 fajita sized flour tortillas (I used Multi-Grain)

In a mixing bowl combine chicken, lime marinade, lime juice, and green chilies. In your crock pot layer about 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture, one tortilla and about 1/3 cup cheese. Repeat layers. Top with enchilada sauce. Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours or until cheese is melted and heated through. Garnish with green onion, sour cream, and any other additional toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
