Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas


When looking at the ingredients, you'll see "farro," which is a grain, like rice, but better and "puffier..." I RECOMMEND USING THIS!! IF YOU MUST.. then get brown rice (not instant... but you'll be sorry!)

The word enchilada means seasoned with chile (which this recipe is) and when the farro slow-cooks with fire-roasted tomatoes in enchilada sauce, it absorbs all of the flavors and tastes just like corn tortillas that have been dipped in sauce and baked. The finished dish tastes just like cheesy chicken enchiladas.

You’ll be glad that this recipe makes 10 hearty servings! It’s so good, you might want to eat the leftovers for breakfast. It tastes amazing topped with a sunny side-up egg.
