As a busy wife and mother of two young sons, I rely on this handy recipe.  I layer enchilada ingredients in the slow cooker, turn it on and forget about it.  With a bit of spice, these hearty enchiladas are especially nice during the colder months.

Slow Cooker Enchiladas

1 lb. ground beef

1 cup chopped onion

½ cup chopped green pepper

1 can (16 oz.) pinto or kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained

In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper until meat is NO LONGER “PINK”; drain.  Add the next eight ingredients; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.  Combine cheeses.

In a 5 quart slow cooker, layer about ¾ cup beef mixture, one tortilla and about 1/3 cup cheese. Repeat layers.  Cover and cook on low 5-7 hours or until heated through.          4 servings
