Crockpot Enchilada Lasagna

Vegan & GF Crockpot Enchilada LasagnaCrockpot cooking is the best thing to do during the summer.  Especially if you don’t have to do more than just make a quick sauce on the stove and cut up some veggies. And, no, this is not a soup. It’s a lasagna. And not just any lasagna, an enchilada lasagna that is full of good-time veggies and homemade sauce, a few tortillas and a little cheese. Yum. Here is my vegan and gluten-free Crockpot Enchilada Lasagna.

I have made this a few times before many, many years ago, but it was always in the oven and never full of veggies. It was always made with real dairy cheese and meat-less meat, and tons of tortillas and canned sauce. Meaning full of fat and tons of calories. This one is full of homemade enchilada sauce which I mixed a little with garlic-chive cream cheese (yum, I love this cream cheese!) and a huge bowl full of veggies. Like more veggies than fit in the crockpot. I used only four tortillas per layer, which may seem like a lot but if I had make this in the oven I would have had to use two pans and a ton more tortillas. In the slow-cooker I didn’t use all that much cheese – in a normal enchilada anything I use tons of cheese. In this only about a cup!

For this easy lasagna, just start by making the homemade enchilada sauce – it is so easy and has no salt except for what’s in the low-sodium veg stock. Let it sit while cutting the veggies. Cut all veggies and put in a big bowl; do the jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, and lime last and then mix with a big spoon. Be sure to turn the crockpot on when starting to cut the veggies. In a small bowl pour half the enchilada sauce, the cream cheese and 1/2 cup veggie stock and mix. In the bottom of the crockpot pour half the non-creamy sauce and spread, then layer 4 tortillas. Pour a 1/3 of the creamy sauce and spread then lots of veggies then do again with the layering. Layer until you can’t layer anymore or you run out of veggies (I had about 4 cups left when I ran out of room so I just saved them for a later dinner), then layer four more tortillas, the rest of the regular sauce and the one cup of cheese. Let cook with the lid on for 2 1/2 – 3 hours. The bottom layer of tortillas will be sticking to the bottom, but that’s okay. It’s awesome! Enjoy!

    • Funny – Texas has more than enough heat and humidity for everyone – doesn’t stop me from making this though 🙂 I wish Texas would get the memo from Michigan that we would like to cool off a little though!!!
