Slow Cooker Beef and Bean Torta

  • Cooking Time:

    4–5 hours
  • Servings:



1 lb. ground beef
1 onion, small, chopped
15 oz. beans, pin­to or black beans, drained and rinsed
10 oz. toma­toes with green chilies, undrained
2 1/4 oz. olives, black, drained
2 tsp. chili pow­der, or to taste
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pep­per
3 dash­es hot pep­per sauce
4 flour tor­tillas, (8″)
12 oz. cheese, Mex­i­can blend, shred­ded
Option­al; fresh cilantro, for gar­nish

Want­ed to share this recipe from Peter H.. I was inspired by his Mex­i­can dish that he won hon­ors with on the Del­ish Slow Cook­er recipe con­test! YUMMY and just in time for Super Bowl! (I cut them into small bit size pieces with more tor­tillas for an appe­tiz­er.)

  1. Cov­er the the bot­tom of your 5 quart slow cook­er with heavy duty foil cut into strips and placed in a criss­cross pat­tern, so they resem­ble spokes of a wheel. Push foil against sides, fold­ing over the top edge of the slow cook­er.
  2. Spray strips gen­er­ous­ly with non­stick cook­ing spray.
  3. Brown beef and onion in a skil­let until meat is no longer pink, about 7–8 min­utes, stir­ring; drain excess fat.
  4. Com­bine beans, toma­toes and chilies, olives, chili pow­der, salt, pep­per, hot pep­per sauce and mix into beef mix­ture.
  5. Put 1 tor­tilla in bot­tom of slow cook­er. Option­al: For addi­tion­al fla­vor you can light­ly brown the tor­tilla in a skil­let.
  6. Add about 1 2/3 cups meat mix­ture and top with 1/4 cup cheese. OR less meat sauce and repeat more lay­ers of tor­tillas topped with cheese.
  7. Repeat lay­er­ing three times using remain­ing meat mix­ture and cheese, fin­ish­ing with cheese.
  8. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 4 to 5 hours, until heat­ed through.
  9. With foil strip han­dles, lift the tor­tilla stack to a plat­ter. Cut into four wedges.
  10. Sprin­kle with cilantro.

Serve with sal­sa, sour cream, gua­camole, let­tuce, and toma­toes, if desired.
