Serving: 6
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 4 hours 45 minutes
Total Time 4 hours 50 minutes


  • 500g ground beef mince
  • 1 x 435g can of refried beans (I used Old El Paso brand)
  • 1 x 35g taco seasoning powder sachet
  • 4 ripe tomatoes diced
  • 5 tortilla wraps
  • Grated tasty cheese - 2 cups approx
  • Ground paprika


  • Combine mince, beans, seasoning and tomatoes in slow cooker and mix well.
  • Cook on low for approximately 4hrs.
  • When complete it's time to assemble the tortilla stack.
  • This 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.
  • Lay down one tortilla wrap.
  • Top with 1/5 of meat mixture.
  • Sprinkle with 1/3 cup of grated cheese.
  • Lay another tortilla wrap over the top and press down.
  • Top with 1/5 of meat mixutre and 1/3 cup grated cheese. Lay another wrap and continue this process until all used.
  • On the final layer I topped with 2/3 cup of cheese for extra cheesy top.
  • I then sprinkle a small amount of ground paprika over the cheese (it gives that browned appearance to cheese in slow cooking)
  • Cover and cook on high for approx 45mins or until heated through and cheese melted.
  • If 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.
  • Serve slices of the stack with fresh garden salad.
