Crock Pot Tex Mex Casserole

We love Tex Mex here at the cottage and often times when someone is coming over for dinner they will ask for a Tex Mex dish. I have been making this recipe for years and wanted to make it for a special dinner for a friend, but I didn't want to be in the kitchen right up to dinner. The solution was a recipe for my new Crock Pot Casserole Cooker. I may never go back to the old recipe, everyone just loved this and I had lots of time to visit with friends.

  2. Great tutorial! I love Mexican food in all forms. This looks so good, easy, and comforting. I'll have to make it the next time my husband is gone. Unfortuantely, he doesn't share my love.

  7. This looks like a great meal! Do you have a suggestion for a substitute on the beans? My husband can't have them. Thanks for linking up with Delicious Dishes Recipe Party!

    1. Hi Meredith,
      I am so glad you liked the recipe, but I sure don't have a substitute for the beans, I would just leave them out and double the corn. Hope you enjoy the recipe and thanks for stopping by!
