Southwestern Lasagna (With No Noodles)

“This has all the flavors I love - it's cheesy, spicy (but not too spicy) and has the "red meat" that my husband craves. Feel free to puree the tomatoes, I do because I don't like "chunks" in my lasagna. It's a winner all the way around at my house! Cooking time includes crockpot time.”
