These easy to make Gluten Free Slow Cooker Cheesy Enchiladas will become a family favorite! They're the perfect addition to your Taco Tuesday recipe lineup! Or any day recipe lineup, because lets be real, it doesn't have to be Tuesday for me to enjoy a delicious meal like this!
1lb of ground beef or turkey
1 and 1/2 cups uncooked quinoa
1 can (15oz) black beans drained
1 cup frozen corn
1 can diced tomatoes and chiles
1/2 cup red onion chopped
1 cup of bell peppers chopped
1 cup of water
1 can enchilada sauce*
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
2 cups of shredded cheese
Optional: avocado, gluten free chips, cilantro, sour cream for garnishes
- *I use Frontera packets and need 2. Sometimes I mix and match, using the red enchilada sauce and a taco seasoning one.
Cook the beef/turkey until brown. Drain.
Add all the ingredients into the crockpot except the cheese and optional garnishes.
Stir to combine.
Cook on high for about 3 hours, stirring occasionally. You want to watch for the liquid to be absorbed.
Once the water is almost completely absorbed, turn off the slow cooker and add in the shredded cheese, stirring to get the cheesy goodness all throughout the pot.
Serve by itself or on top of chips. I love these gluten free hint of lime chips from Late July.
These look fun and easy to make. Great for an outdoor picnic or sitting on the patio. I like to spend as much time as I can outdoors in the warm weather.
These look so yummy! I absolutely love enchiladas and they are my “go to” item to order when we go out for Mexican food. yum!
I love enchilladas! This sounds so good.
These look amazing! I’m such a sucker for anything tex-mex like this. And if it has avocado – all the better! – Katy
It sounds delicious! I love that you added so many vegetables
Our family loves a flavorful Mexican meal and I love using the crock pot during hot weather. We’ll definitely be trying this recipe with the ground turkey!
Perfect! I had no idea what I was going to make for dinner tomorrow and this will do just nicely!
I am obsessed with Taco Tuesday! I would love to have a plate full of these enchiladas right now.
I have never made enchiladas in my slow cooker! These look delicious!

Oh, this will make so many people happy. Cheesy enchiladas are delicious, in general, and these look great. How lucky that they’re also gluten-free!
Ooh, your enchilada’s look SO good! I’ve not had any of these for ages. I may just have to make some for tea next week! 🙂

All the yums! Saving this for our next Taco Tuesday! During the summer we usually go a simpler route because I hate turning on my gas stove in this heat. However, the slow cooker is a life saver! YES!
Oh wow, I want to make these! I like making things in the slow cooker, the evenings can get hectic but knowing there is a yummy dinner cooking while I am busy doing other things with my kids is so nice.
