This was an awesome dish! I didn't put the whole can of green chilliest though... only about half. Served with sour cream/green onions/fresh diced tomatoes and sales. Thoroughly enjoyed by all!

I used spicy enchilada sauce and pepper jack cheese. Not sure why, but it does have tamale flavor!

This was ok. I made it so that I could leave it in the crockpot for my husband to have when he came home. Normally he loves this kind of thing, but he was a little confused by this because it cooks down so much in the crockpot that it seems like a chili of some sort. He also didn't eat any of the leftovers, and neither did I. But it is very easy and I can imagine that kids would enjoy it because it is very mild in flavor.
