  • Slow Cooker
  • Skillet


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ½ green bell pepper diced
  • ½ yellow squash diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 15 ounces pinto beans rinsed and drained
  • 15 ounces black beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 10 ounces red enchilada sauce divided
  • 1 ounce low sodium taco seasoning packet
  • 2 cups shredded Colby Jack Cheese
  • 6 corn tortillas 6 inch
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce optional topping
  • Tablespoons sour cream optional topping
  • 1 tomato diced-optional topping
  • 1 avocado diced-optional topping


  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef, green pepper, squash, and onion until ground beef is no longer pink.
  • Reduce heat to low and add beans, salsa, 1/2 can of the enchilada sauce, and taco seasoning and cook until heated through. Let simmer for 5 minutes so that the flavors can meld together.
  • Pour 1/3 of the meat mixture in the bottom of the slow cooker sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, sprinkle 1/2 cup of the cheese over the meat and top with two tortillas (they will overlap a little in the middle). Repeat layers two more times.
  • Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the top of the tortillas (spread with a spatula if you need to) and top with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
  • Cover with lid and cook on low for 3-4 hours (just until it's heated through)
  • Scoop servings onto plates and top with your favorite toppings.
