Do you love “taco night” – or as we call it around here, “Taco Tuesday?”  Mix things up a bit this week with Slow Cooker Taco Casserole!  This dish is full of all the yummy flavors you find in a taco but super easy to prepare and serve casserole style!  Note: I always make this dish in my CROCK-POT® CASSEROLE CROCK (I’m seriously in love with this slow cooker) but you can use any 5 quart or larger slow cooker.

  1. Spray crock with nonstick cooking spray or brush inside of 3 1/2 to 4 quart slow cooker with oil.
  2. Brown ground sirloin in a skillet with onion and garlic over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until thoroughly cooked, stir frequently. Drain.
  3. Stir in taco seasoning mix, salt and pepper.
  4. Place 3 tortillas in bottom of oiled slow cooker. Top with beef mixture, broth, tomato sauce and enchilada sauce. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the cheese.
  5. Layer 3 more tortillas. Top with beans, Mexicorn, green chiles, half of the olives and 1/2 cup cheese.
  6. Top with remaining 3 tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and olives.
  7. Cover. Cook on High for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or on Low for 6 to 7 hours.
  8. Uncover slow cooker for last 30 minutes of crock time.

Serve with sour cream.

Optional: Facebook friend felt there were too many tortillas, so you can reduce from 9 to the however many you would like!

Happy Crocking!

I love this recipe. I have been doing this recipe by oven for years. It is always a winner when I make it. By oven, it only takes 30 to 45 minutes. What is the advantage of doing this by slow cooker?

Do you drain any of the other canned items besides the beans?

Well we didn’t drain anything else but beans and ours is pretty much a soup consistency. It looks nothing like the photo. Thinking we should have drained the other items. Bummer.

1 peppers, Red and Green, drained

This is listed as an ingredient, but not mentioned in the directions?

You listed peppers in the ingredients but did not mention them in the directions. Was that a mistake?

What type of red and green peppers? You said drained but I’ve never seen them in a can. Can I use fresh?
