Enchilada Casserole Recipe

I saw this over on A Busy Mom's Slow Cooker Adventures and decided we're trying it for dinner tonight. I'm actually retyping it here so I'll be able to print it out and take it to the kitchen with me. Her post has the pictures that are getting me to try the recipe, but I don't want to print them all out!

12-14 small flour tortillas (someone later in her comments mentioned corn tortillas didn't work!)
1/2 lb. ground beef, seasoned, browned and drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 jar salsa
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can Enchilada Sauce
2 cups Shredded Cheese
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 - 1 tsp. chili powder
non-stick spray
Spray the Slow Cooker liner (or the slow cooker, if you haven't got the fabulous liners) with non-stick spray.
Brown the ground beef with the salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder.
Line the bottom of the Slow Cooker with the flour tortillas.  You may need to cut some in half.
Next, spread 1/3 of the ground beef, 1/3 of the black beans, 1/3 of the onion, 1/3 of the salsa, 1/3 of enchilada sauce and 1/4 of the shredded cheese over the bottom layer of tortillas.
Now, make 2 more layers just like this! Just reserve a tiny bit of Enchilada sauce for the top layer!
Lastly, place one last layer of tortillas on top and top that with the last bit of Enchilada Sauce and cheese!
Cook on LOW for 4-6 hours or on HIGH for 2 hours.
When it's all done, she said the top actually got crispy!!!!! Sounds delicious - and the photos are great too if you check out her post here.

I think I'll try this too. I may even already have everything in the house.
