Slow Cooker Low-Carb Mexican Lasagna Casserole can really scratch that Mexican food itch when you have one. And this sounds tasty for a Taco Tuesday dinner or Super Bowl Party Food!
On Mondays we indulge our love of Mexican food and suggest ideas you might want to make for a Taco Tuesday dinner the next day. And maybe I am stretching it a bit by calling Mexican Lasagna a Taco Tuesday dinner, but I say anything with Mexican flavors sounds good on Tuesdays! And I bet this Slow Cooker Low-Carb Mexican Lasagna Casserole would disappear pretty quickly at a Super Bowl Party as well! If you don’t have the Casserole Crock that I used for this recipe, you can make it in any large oval slow cooker, it just won’t look quite as good.
And it is the use of low-carb tortillas that makes this a low-carb recipe, so if you don’t care about that, just use any sturdy flour tortillas instead. Enjoy!
This recipe was inspired by the Low-Carb Slow Cooker Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas that I’ve also featured here, and after I made that one, the idea for Slow Cooker Low-Carb Mexican Lasagna Casserole popped into my head! The Mexican lasagna has seasoned ground beef that’s cooked with spicy tomatoes and salsa and layered with low-carb tortillas, cottage cheese, and cheese, similar to the way you’d layer lasagna. I made both these recipes in the Crock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker that has been so fun to experiment with!
I tested both these recipes when my brother Rand was staying with me, and he couldn’t get enough of them, and both have been a hit on Kalyn’s Kitchen. And it’s only the use of low-carb tortillas that makes both those recipes low-carb, so if low-carb eating is not your thing, go ahead and use any tortillas you prefer.
