In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage, onion garlic, and red pepper until sausage is lightly browned and onion is tender.
In a slow cooker, combine meat mixture, green chilies, corn, and enchilada sauce. Cover and cook on either a low heat setting for 6 to 8 hours, or on high heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.
Right before the last hour of cooking, stir the meat mixture and make sure your slow cooker is set on the high setting. In a medium bowl stir together the corn muffin mix, cheeses, milk, and egg.
Drop the batter by tablespoons onto the meat mixture. Sprinkle with reserved cheddar cheese. Cover and cook for 45-50 minutes making sure not to lift the cover. Remove crock from slow cooker and allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
