Crockpot Hamburger Fiesta Casserole ***

This was the culmination of several different Mexican Chicken/Mexican Hamburger casserole recipes.  We ended up really enjoying it.  Unfortunately, we ran way late getting home from the doc with the 11-year-old, so it was drier than I would have liked.  The flavor was fabulous, though.  I want to continue to play with it and see what other changes I can think up, but it's great as-is.  I'll absolutely make it again.

1 lb ground turkey or lean beef
1 chopped onion
8 oz sliced mushrooms
1 can Healthy Request cream of mushroom soup
1 can mild Rotel
16 oz canned corn, drained
8 oz sliced black olives, drained
1-1/2 cups shredded fiesta blend cheddar cheese
1 bag tortilla chips or corn chips (do not crush)

Brown ground turkey with chopped onion and mushrooms until no longer pink; drain juices.
Stir in soup and Rotel and heat until warm.
Spray crockpot with nonstick spray.
Sprinkle half of the bag of chips into the bottom of the crockpot. Top with half of the corn and half of the black olives.  Follow with 1/2 cup of cheese and half of the meat mixture.
Continue with a second set of layers and top with the final 1/2 cup of cheese.
Cook on high 3 hours or low 5-6 hours.  Serve warm.
