Crock Pot Monday {{Mexican Tortilla Lasagna}}

It’s Crock Pot Monday and I’m sure all of you are enjoying new recipes just as much as I am! I’m madly in love with the idea of how easy it is to create a meal in the crock pot for those days when you are wayyy too busy to cook. Sometimes life is just a bit too chaotic to be little Miss Betty Crocker. ;-) Well here’s another recipe for you to help make life seemingly easier!
Mexican Tortilla Lasagna

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 pound of chicken {or if you want to be healthier you can use turkey}
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup carrots, peeled and grated (about 2 carrots)
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels, defrosted
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 12 oz pkg. corn tortillas (12 tortillas)
  • 2 cups mexican cheese blend
  • 2 16 oz jar mild chunky salsa

HOW TO:

  1. Heat 1 TBSP of olive oil in a large sauté pan and cook the onions for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté an additional minute.
  2. Add the chicken {or turkey}, cumin, salt and chili powder and cook for 6-7 minutes until cooked through. Place turkey mixture aside and cool.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the egg and sour cream together. Add the cooled turkey mixture, carrots, corn and cilantro and mix to combine.
  4. Spread a 1 cup of salsa on the bottom of the crock pot.
  5. Layer 5 tortillas on top of the salsa {covering the salsa completely}.
  6. Place half the chicken {or turkey} mixture on top of the tortillas and top with 1 cup of salsa and 1/2 cup of cheese.
  7. Add another layer of 3 tortillas on top of the cheese. Pour the remaining chicken {or turkey} mixture on top of the tortillas and top with another 1/2 cup of cheese.
  8. Top the lasagna with 3 more tortillas, pour the remaining salsa on top and cover with 1 cup of cheese.
  9. Cook on low for 2 1/2 hours.
  10. Serve & enjoy!
