  • Total Time: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 3 hours
  • Makes: 8 servings


  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with basil, oregano and garlic
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cans (15-1/2 ounces each) hominy, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 flour tortillas (10 inches)
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives


  • Cut three 25×3-in. strips of heavy-duty foil; crisscross so they resemble spokes of a wheel. Place strips on the bottom and up the sides of a round 5-qt. slow cooker. Coat strips with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, salsa, tomato paste and cumin. Stir in hominy and beans. Place 1 tortilla on the bottom of slow cooker. Top with a third of the hominy mixture and cheese. Repeat layers twice. Sprinkle with olives. Cover and cook on low for 3 to 3-1/2 hours or until heated through.
  • Using foil strips as handles, remove the lasagna to a platter. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting into wedges.
