Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Mexican Lasagna - Crock

I call it this, because I don't know what else to call it...besides good and easy. :-) It is layering idea like a lasagna, but you are using Mexican style ingredients. You can fill it to the brim to feed a crowd, or half way to feed a family. I am going to give you the basic idea - with suggestions. You get creative and try different things that you have on hand. It always turn out yummy!

Corn Tortillas (or Flour, Spinach, nacho chips or corn chips)
*Cooked or canned Beans (Black, Pinto, refried)
Diced Tomatoes (I use canned out of season)
Green Chilies (I use canned)(or jalapenos if you like it real spicy)
Corn (I use frozen)
Shredded Cheddar
*Cooked Meat (Hamburger, thin sliced beef, chicken, or turkey)
Seasoning (Taco Seasoning mix or Chili Powder and Cumin)

* You may choose to use either beans OR meat OR both. When I do both, I like to put them in rotate it in its own layer.
  • Cook and/or season left over meat or beans with taco style seasoning.

Start Layering enough to cover:

  1. Tortillas to cover the bottom
  2. Beans/Meat
  3. Tomatoes and chilies
  4. Corn
  5. Cheese

Repeat until you make as much much as you want. Finish with tortillas, sprinkled with cheese and maybe a little more seasoning (for looks).

Cook on Low for 6 hours

Garnish suggestions: Sour cream, avocado, shredded lettuce, and olives. May also consider serving with rice, corn bread or tortilla chips.
