I’ve been making this recipe in my traditional oven for years. Now I use the slow cooker, which I think renders better results since it doesn’t dry out the tortillas. This is a family favorite.

Ingredients:

1 pound lean ground beef (or leftover roast beef)
6 large white tortillas
16 ounce can refried beans
1 package dry taco seasoning mix
1 1/2 cups cheddar or Mexican cheese, shredded and divided

Directions:

Brown beef and drain. Sprinkle with taco seasoning mix and stir well. (If you use leftover roast, just reheat it and mix it with taco seasoning mix.)

Spray inside of slow cooker with a cooking spray. Place the tortillas in the bottom of the slow cooker, spacing them so that they cover the entire surface. Tear a few of them to cover open spaces.

Layer refried beans, taco seasoned meat, and 1 cup cheese. If you like, you can place more tortillas on top.

Cover and cook on low for about 4 hours. Remove cover and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover again until cheese melts.

Optional: You may like to serve this with side dishes of sour cream, chopped onions, diced tomatoes, and/or extra taco sauce.
