Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

Omg, it’s enchiladas!!?

I’ll admit we were running a little behind schedule all day and with making dinner so we easily went a little crazy with the cheese – skipping the step where you measure it out before sprinkling it on top, ooops!??

Seriously speaking, ever since I did a 21-Day cleanse, I learned just how much eating too much cheese, effected my skin, sinuses, and just overall -how I felt throughout thy body.

So I do try to keep eating cheese to a min each week and even sometimes end up skipping a week simply because it’s just not an everyday go-to anymore.

Next time…we will use that measuring spoon to get it just right.?

Here’s the Recipe for ya:
