Terry's notes for this recipe:
A friend introduced me to this recipe about 20 years ago. Now I make it for pot lucks at work and it's always a big hit!

Directions

1
To the browned ground beef add the chopped green beans, corn, green chilies, refried beans, salsa,jalapenos and taco seasoning. Mix together until well blended.
2
Spray crock pot with Pam, put some of the beef mixture on bottom, make a layer with the tortillas, another layer of meat mixture, and sprinkle with cheddar cheese (we like it cheesy), repeat layering until crock pot is full, ending with cheese.
3
Cook on low for 4-5 hours. Serve with chopped tomatoes, sour cream, shredded lettuce, and more salsa if you want. We also like to add Crunchy Tortilla chips as a side.

@bobdoescooking, If you give it a try you will love it. You can make it as mild or spicy as you like. My family likes very spicy so when I make it I use my homemade canned salsa made with Scorpion Peppers.
