Pat's notes for this recipe:
This recipe from my Rival Crock Pot recipe book is a great savory chicken recipe. I didn't think that it was possible to make this in a crock pot. But it turned out to be a great and quick recipe to make. Try it out and see for yourself!

Prepare foil for crock pot. Fold the foil into long strips. Crisscross strips in spoke design and place in sprayed slow cooker to make lifting of tortilla stack easier.
Place w tortilla on top of the sprayed foil strips. Top with small amount of salsa, beans, chicken and cheese.
Continue layering using remaining ingredients, ending with cheese.
Cover; cook on low 6-8 hours or high 3-4 hours.
Pull out carefully by foil handles. Garnish with fresh cilantro and slice of red bell pepper, if desired. Serve with guacamole and sour cream.

Oh my gosh that looks and sounds scrumptuous. I have some ground turkey meat do you think it would work in place of the chix ?

WAY TO SCORE Ms Pat. A Mexican Lasagna for sure. Your imagination is your only limitation with this recipe.

Yes Gaynel, you can use ground turkey in this recipe.
