Mexican Beef Tortilla Stack
1Combine mince, beans, seasoning and tomatoes in slow cooker and mix well.
2Cook on low for approximately 4hrs.
3When complete it's time to assemble the tortilla stack.
4This can be done in an oven dish if you don't have a smaller slow cooker but I assembled mine directly into the bowl of a 3L slow cooker.
5Lay down one tortilla wrap.
6Top with 1/5 of meat mixture.
7Sprinkle with 1/3 cup of grated cheese.
8Lay another tortilla wrap over the top and press down.
9Top with 1/5 of meat mixutre and 1/3 cup grated cheese. Lay another wrap and continue this process until all used.
10On the final layer I topped with 2/3 cup of cheese for extra cheesy top.
11I then sprinkle a small amount of ground paprika over the cheese (it gives that browned appearance to cheese in slow cooking)
12Cover and cook on high for approx 45mins or until heated through and cheese melted.
13If you are doing this stage in the oven dish instead of the smaller slow cooker, I would bake in a moderate oven for approx 30mins or until heated through and cheese melted.
14Serve slices of the stack with fresh garden salad.
