Taco Pie - Crock Pot Version

My life as of recent does not profit me very much extra time. This little recipe I created (30 minutes BAM! done) was a life saver today and I wanted to quickly share. I love LOVE LOVE having dinner done before my kiddos all come rolling in. I am a much better mom when I am prepared that way. So this is a re-look at an old favorite of ours. I like this one better. Hope you enjoy!

1-1/12 lbs lean ground turkey or beef - cook until no longer pink and drain
(** or half meat and half quinoa** that's my vote:)

 Mix well in a bowl and then add meat/quinoa mixture to this.
1 26oz can Tomato Soup
1 can Rotel (Diced tomatoes with green chili's)
1 bag frozen corn
1 can black beans
1 1/2 C greek yogurt of lowfat sour cream
1 pkg low sodium taco seasoning
1 pkg dry ranch seasoning
2 Tbl dried onion flakes

2-3 C cheese of choice
7-8 tortillas

Layer in "old school" (round with perpendicular sides) crock pot
grease lightly the bottom of crock-pot
meat mixture
cheese and repeat until full.
Cook on LOW for 4 hours

You can also do this in 2 separate dishes one for dinner tonight and one for the freezer.
Bake (thawed & covered) 350 for 40 min

Serve with fresh guacamole, salsa and rice.
