Mexican flavors have become my go-to for weeknight dinners. Smoky cumin, spicy chili powder, savory salsa, and cooling sour cream speak to me no matter which season it is. Better yet, these flavors seem to satisfy the whole family, even if we have no idea what we're in the mood for. The recipe below reminds me how easy it is to make a lasagna-esq dish in the slow cooker by layering tortillas, chicken, beans, cheese, and salsa.
Feel free to make this Mexican lasagna with whatever is in your refrigerator. I love this recipe's ability to use up leftover chicken to create a healthy, full-flavored dinner, but you could also substitute ground beef or pulled pork. If you're looking for a vegetarian meal, omit the meat and boost up the vegetables (like zucchini, spinach, or fresh tomatoes).
