During these long cold winter months, it seems like the Crockpot is more popular than ever. I have been using mine a lot this year and also experiementing with adapting family favorites into Crockpot meals.
Last week I tried one of these adaptations and I headed to Dollar General for ingredients. Dollar General has so many kitchen staples available on their shelves with their Clover Valley brand – most of them at prices lower than national brands. This makes Dollar General easy meals both quick, easy AND affordable!
I was able to get everything I needed at Dollar General to create this Crockpot Layered Bean Burritos recipe along with a side dish of Spanish rice for just over $10. I even had extra ingredients left over.
You might want to consider using a slow cooker liner for this dish. We all know how hard it can be to clean up after anything made with cheese! You can find them here. Once you are done cooking and serving, just pull the liner of the pot and throw away. You’ll be left with a totally clean slow cooker with nothing to wash!
So, let’s get on to the recipe
Crockpot Layered Bean Burritos

1 tsp Clover Valley Chili Powder

1 15 oz. can Clover Valley Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies

Place tortilla in Crockpot. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup shredded cheese. Spread 3/4 cup tomato mixture on top. Continue the process, alternating tortillas, cheese and tomato mixture until you end with cheese on the top.
Cook on low for 3 1/2 hours.
To serve, we added Clover Valley Spanish Rice – just heat in the microwave and serve!
