    Quick tips about crock pot taco lasagna

    • Want an easier clean up? Try using a slow cooker liner before you add ingredients.
    • If you don’t have a slow cooker or would rather bake taco lasagna in the oven, you easily can. Just add all ingredients to a 9×13 baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes (until cheese is melted and bubbly).
    • Use gluten-free or corn tortillas (check the label!) to make gluten-free.
    • Want to lighten up the crockpot Mexican lasagna? Use ground turkey or shredded chicken vs. ground beef. And substitute full fat cheeses with reduced fat cream cheese and shredded cheese.
    • If you’re not a fan of black beans, you could use pinto beans instead. You could even omit beans all together and use corn as the replacement.
