Slow cooker enchiladas

Since I have no oven in my current apartment, I have been looking for new and creative recipes to try in the slow cooker. I found one for enchiladas on Allrecipes.com and decided to use that as the basis for dinner tonight. Of course, I am terrible about measurements, so maybe you'll want to look up their recipe if you want exact amounts.
Need:
~1.5 lbs ground beef
1/2 cup taco seasoning
1/4 cup water
1 can cream of chicken
1 cup salsa
handful of fresh cilantro (because it was on sale 0.74 a bunch!)
Corn tortillas
Shredded cheese

Step 1: Brown the ground beef in a skillet. Drain off as much of the grease as you can. Add the taco seasoning and ´╗┐water, and cook the seasoning into the beef until most is absorbed. This is the second layer over the tortillas.

Step 2: Mix the chicken soup, salsa and diced cilantro in a bowl. This will be your third layer.
 
Step 3: Spray the inside of the crock pot so hopefully there will be no burnt-on mess later. Put down a layer or 2 of tortillas. Then a layer of meat. Then the cheese mixture. Over the topmost layer of beef, I added some slices of pepper jack to give it an extra little kick.

Keep layering until you use all the beef and soup mixture. Put a top layer of tortillas on and sprinkle with more cheese. Put on High for 45 minutes to 1 hour. We will see in an hour how well I did!
