Delicious! Great flavor and easy to make. It didn't turn "mushy" loke some crockpot casseroles; the layers held up. It's important to generously spray your crockpot. I used homemade enchilada sauce, so I spread a little extra over the last layer of tortillas (before the cheese). I was out of black olives so I had to leave them out, but I'll add them next time. Thanx for posting!

This was very tasty. I left out the beans--don't like them in my family but kept everything else and added 2 chilis in adobo. I used my warming oven to slow cook this. Put on low for 5 hours, then went to high for one high. Kids loved this. Thanks for sharing. Easy to prepare and walk away from and let the slow cooker do all the work. Easy clean up, too.
