Crock pots are a wonderful kitchen gadget because it saves you so much time on busy days. Creating a healthy meal at home is just the prep time and you can focus on other things that need to get done instead of being stuck in the kitchen cooking. This Tex-Mex crockpot casserole is one your family will surely love. Serve this was a fresh crisp salad and you have a wonderful weeknight meal for your family.

This Tex-Mex crockpot casserole not only is vegetarian, but tastes so darn delicious. You can also add in shredded chicken if you wanted to add in more protein, but the beans are a wonderful vegetarian protein source with lots of vitamins and minerals. Mexican food for me is something I could eat all year long and never get tired of. This meal will keep you satisfied for hours.

  • 1 16-ounce can refried black beans
  • 1 15-ounce can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 zucchinis, sliced into half moons
  • 1 10-ounce can diced tomatoes and green chilies (Rotel is my preference)
  • 2 cups fire roasted corn, canned or frozen
  • 12 Siete grain free taco shells (one package has 12 shells), broken into pieces
  • 1 16-ounce jar salsa

Optional Garnishes:

1. Combine the beans, zucchini, corn, onions, cumin, chili powder, and cilantro in a medium sized bowl. Separately in another bowl, combine the can of diced tomatoes with green chilies with salsa. 

2. In your slow cooker, evenly spread 1/2 cup of the tomato and salsa mixture onto the bottom. Top with 1/3 of the broken taco shells. Then spread half of the bean mixture over the taco shells, sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups of cheese. Top that with 1 cup of salsa mixture. Repeat the layers until all of the mixture is in the slow cooker. 

3. Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low setting for 4 hours. Serve with any of the optional garnishes.
