I dunno, it’s something about the corn tortillas soaked in juices that make me think of delicious tamales. So I started with the basic idea of enchiladas this time and adapted it for the slow cooker.
this is one of my all time favorite slow cooker recipes.

There are few things I love more than delicious tacos on corn tortillas! My family grew up so close to the Mexican border, that we always had a special place in our hearts for the delicious cuisine of that region. The important focus is always on fresh ingredients, and since that region tends to be warmer there is a long growing season to support delicious fresh produce a large part of the year.
