Slow Cooker Mexican Lasagna

I was introduced to this recipe by our former next door neighbor. After our daughter was born she kindly offered to bring us a meal. She showed up to our door with her crockpot and this dish.

With a few minor adjustments, this has become a favorite in our house — well, maybe not with the kids quite yet. They usually get quesadillas on the nights we make it. We keep this one on a monthly rotation and love having dinner hot, ready and waiting for us. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
