Ingredients

  • 1 pound hamburger
  • 2 tablespoons homemade taco seasoning or you can use 1 package taco seasoning
  • ¼ cup water
  • 8 oz oven ready lasagna noodles
  • 4 soft taco flour tortillas
  • 16 oz fresh salsa
  • 15.5 oz can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheese blend

Instructions

  • 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

Notes

  • 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.
