Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

I love Mexican food and I find that Taste of Home Recipes are almost always very good.  Having said that, I will say I have not yet tried this recipe.  I got it this morning from a friend who credits it to Taste of Home and that is good enough for me!

1 lb 90% lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 can (15-oz) Ranch-Style Beans
1 can (10-oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies, do not drain
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 (6-inch) flour tortillas

In a large skillet cook the beef and onion until the beef is not longer pink; drain.

Stir the beans, tomatoes, bell pepper, chili powder, salt, cumin, and black pepper into the beef mixture.

Combine the cheeses in a small bowl; set aside.

Cut 3 25-inch by 3-inch strips of heavy duty aluminum foil and crisscross so they resemble spokes of a wheel.  Place onto the bottom and up sides of cooker.  Spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Place two tortillas in the cooker, overlapping if necessary; top with a third of the beef mixture then 1/3 of the cheese.  Repeat layers twice.

Place cover on cooker and cook on low for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

Use the foil strips as handles to remove from cooker to serving platter.
