Crockpot Mexican Lasagna

Layers of tortilla, meat, and loads of flavor meld together in your slow cooker for this wonderful Mexican Lasagna meal.

You will love this fun slow cooker Mexican Lasagna. It is one of the first recipes I ever learned to make in a slow cooker (crockpot) and it is still a family favorite.

How to Make Mexican Lasagna in a Slow Cooker

In a skillet, begin cooking 1 pound ground beef, and a diced onion.

001ab-2

When it is fully cooked, turn off the heat and add in 1 Tablespoon of Taco Seasoning.

002ab-4

Stir in a can of Fire-Roasted Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies.

003ab-3

Rinse and drain a can of Black Beans.

005ab-2

And stir those in.

006ab-6

Finally, stir in some salt, around a 1/2 teaspoon or so. My taco seasoning does not have salt in it, so that the salt can be adjusted to whatever you are using it in.

007ab-3

In your crockpot, spread about 1/2 cup of the mixture into the bottom.

008ab-5

Place a tortilla over this, then scoop another 1/2 cup of the mixture.

009ab-5

Sprinkle with about 1/3-1/2 cup of Pepper Jack Cheese.

010ab-4

My tortillas were actually too big, so the rest of them I tore into pieces to fit them better.

011ab-4

Repeat with tortilla, mixture and cheese again…this time Cheddar cheese.

012ab-2

 

Repeat with all of these layers, until you have used all of your mixture. Alternate the layers with the different cheeses, and the final layer should have a little of both.

Turn your crockpot on to low, and cook for 3-4 hours.

Isn’t this gorgeous?

016ab-2

Cut the Lasagna into wedges – this generally makes 6 servings. Lift a wedge out onto your plate and serve topped with a little Sour Cream….and anything else you would like.

Enjoy!

  2. I am making this for tonights dinner as I am working a night shift tonight. It was super easy and I adapted it by putting a little extra Mexene powder, garlic and some frozen corn. It smells delish. Can't wait to get up at 4 this afternoon and dinner is ready. The salad is also made and ready to just take out of fridge.

  3. Great recipe! I made this in early September, as written, and it was a hit! Quick, easy, and yummy. Made it again with lean ground turkey to lighten up and also added corn to the mix. For a little more heat, I went with tomatoes with jalepenos. So good! Thank you!

  4. Does 'fire roasted' mean that the tomatoes are spicier/hotter? Would a mild Rotel work? I'm a real light weight when it comes to spicy hot foods….Thanks, Cheryl

    • Hi Cheryl! "Fire Roasted" simply means that the tomatoes have been charred with flames, which adds a little extra flavor. Rotel would work as well. This dish is not at all spicy. I'm a wimp when it comes to "hot" :)
