Slow-Cooker Bean and Spinach Enchiladas

So husband does not care for corn tortillas. I used flour tortillas in place of corn tortillas in this dish to make him happy. BIG mistake. They get really gummy! They tasted okay, but the texture was off. I would make this again and use corn tortillas (he will have to suffer through it).

Slow-Cooker Bean and Spinach Enchiladas

serves 4
Ingredients:

1 15.5-ounce can black beans, rinsed
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed of excess liquid
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
8 ounces sharp Cheddar, grated (2 cups)
kosher salt and black pepper
2 16-ounce jars salsa (3 1/2 cups)
8 6-inch corn tortillas, warmed

Directions:

In a medium bowl, mash half the beans. Add the spinach, corn, cumin, 1 cup of the Cheddar, the remaining beans, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and mix to combine.
Spread 1 jar of the salsa in the bottom of a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Dividing evenly, roll up the bean mixture in the tortillas (about ½ cup each) and place the rolls seam-side down in a single layer in the slow cooker. Top with the remaining salsa and Cheddar.
Cover and cook until heated through, on low for 2½ to 3 hours.
