Brown ground beef in skillet over medium high heat and drain off excess grease
Stir in taco seasoning and water and let simmer for 3-4 minutes, remove from heat and set aside
In a 9x13 casserole dish start by spreading ¼ cup salsa on bottom
Top with 3 ½ lasagna noodles, ½ cup ricotta cheese, ¼ of the taco meat, ¼ cup beans, ½ cup corn, and ¼ cup salsa
Repeat a second layer using 2 tortillas instead of lasagna noodles
Repeat each of these layers again then finish off with lasagna noodles
Top it all off with remaining ½ cup salsa and 2 cups shredded cheese
Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 2 ½ to 3 hours or until heated through and cheese is melted
I made this in my 4 quart casserole slow cooker.
You may need to adjust your layers accordingly if you use a different size/shape slow cooker. Adjust cooking time slightly if you add additional layers. I suggest at least a 4-5 quart slow cooker for this recipe.
You can cook in the oven instead if desired. Either cook the lasagna noodles in advance or use oven ready. Follow recommended cooking times on noodle package.
