Curious to know if you drain the tomatoes or if the liquid is included in the recipe?
Lauri, thanks for the question, but do include the juices.. Happy Crocking!
I love this recipe but every time i cook it on high, the edges burn. So the next time i cook this i will cook it on low for 4-5 hours.
Monterrey Jack cheese or Pepper Jack?
Brittany if you like the heat, I would use the Pepper Jack, it not I would use the Monterrey Jack.
Great! Thanks! I’ll go with Monterrey for the kiddos and Pepper Jack on date night then. Haha.
I also was wondering if you could could double this? Would that double the cooking time? Has anyone tried that?
Becky you can always double a recipe the only thing you would need to change is that the size of your slow cooker is large enough. The key is to make sure the slow cooker is only 1/2 to 2/3 full to crock properly, and the crocking time will remain the same. Thank you for the question, and Happy Crocking!
have you ever used fresh poblano’s I have some from the garden and wanted to use them
I have not Jean, but bet it will be good!
What size slow cooker to use? Is a 4-quart too large?
Roxanne a 4 quart will be great. The key is to have a slow cooker 1/2 to 2/3 full to crock properly so with the amount of ingredients required this will work fine for you. Happy Crocking!

I have a dumb question I have made this in the past for Christmas Eve and I can’t remember if I double or tripled the recipe its been a few years since I’ve made a similar recipe to yours. So, if I have about 12 people to serve can I triple the recipe all at once or will it mess it up? Thank you I better get my list ready and get to the store so I can add this to the menu with tamales and chicken enchiladas. Merry Christmas!!!
