Steps

  • 1
    Spray 5-quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray. Spoon 1/2 cup enchilada sauce into bottom of slow cooker; spread evenly. In small bowl, reserve 1/2 cup enchilada sauce; set aside.
  • 2
    In 12-inch skillet, cook beef, onion, poblano chiles and garlic over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked. Drain if necessary. Stir in remaining enchilada sauce (not the 1/2 cup reserved), the black beans, corn and taco seasoning mix. Cook and stir about 3 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat.
  • 3
    Place 1 tortilla in center of slow cooker. Cut 1 tortilla in half; place one half on each side of whole tortilla. Spoon 1 1/3 cups beef mixture over tortillas; sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the cheese. Top with 2 more tortillas, cutting to fit. Repeat layers 3 more times with beef mixture, tortillas and cheese. Top with reserved 1/2 cup sauce.
  • 4
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 3 hours. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese. Turn slow cooker off; cover and let stand about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with cilantro.

    Serve immediately with toppings.
