The fun experience of using new cookbooks


I enjoy using new cookbooks. Whenever I buy a new one, I get full of excitement that I have a real hard time containing lol. Ha, it gets even more challenging when I hear certain cookbooks screaming out my name lol, while I’m shopping at my favorite bookstore Barnes & Noble or on Amazon.

Moreover, yesterday I had a blast using my new crockpot cookbook that I bought last week and made this Layered Mexican-Style Casserole. I at first was a little uncertain of how it was going turn out because I saw it was meatless, but to my astonishment, it actually tasted delicious. I am not kidding either this Mexican-Style Casserole was the Bomb.com. I for sure will give this meatless dish a 10-star rating.

Crockpot Layered Mexican-Style Casserole

Ingredients

1-2 cans (approximately 15 oz) Goya hominy

One can (15 oz) Goya black beans

One can (14 oz) diced tomatoes with garlic, basil, and oregano

1 C thick and chunky salsa, Mild or Medium

1 can (6 oz) tomato paste

1/2 tsp ground cumin

3-6 flour tortillas

2 C shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

1/2 C sliced black olives

Directions

1. Prepare foil handles (See Note). Coat inside of your crockpot with non-stick cooking spray. Combine hominy, beans, tomatoes, salsa, tomato paste, cumin in a large bowl; stir to blend. Press one tortilla into the bottom of your crockpot. Top one-third of hominy mixture and one-third of the cheese. Repeat layers

2. Press remaining tortilla on top. Top with remaining hominy mixture. Set aside remaining one-third of the cheese. Cover; cook on LOW for six to eight hours or on HIGH for two to three hours. Turn off the heat sprinkle with remaining cheese and olives. Cover; let stand for five minutes. Pull out tortilla stack with all oil handles cut into six wedges.

*Note: to make foil handles tear off six 18 x 2″ pieces of heavy duty foil or use regular foil. Get two strips and put one on top of the other, fold both ends together. Crisscross foil strips in spoke design and place in crockpot to make lifting of tortilla stack easier.*
