    Most tomato-based recipes need a little sugar, but cocoa powder works fine, too.

    I know, but for me, chocolate syrup has too much sugar and too low a cocoa percentage.

    Our crockpot lasagna was delicious. I'll be making that again. I have a Mexican Lasagna recipe (chicken, black olives, green peppers) that I'm going to dig out and try in the crockpot soon!

    I have all the ingredients for crockpot lasagna this weekend. After reading about your Mexican lasagna, I may get creative with a few ingredients. I'm the only one who has to like it.

    Livin, there isn't really a "recipe". Use your own recipe and cook it in the crockpot. I have an oval one and I broke up the noodles, they still didn't fit great, but they fit good enough.
    Watch the cooking time. Mine was ready about 4 hours before I thought it would be.

    I'm glad the crockpot lasagna worked out well for everyone and I'm sorry I didn't post an actual recipe, I'm not a great recipe follower myself and I tend to throw in whatever I have on hand into a lasagna.

    mrd, you cooked yours on high, right? I used the low setting as I threw it together before leaving for the day. Livin, another thing that I mentioned is that I think it's a good idea to let it "rest" in the crock for a good 1/2 hour before serving, just like you'd do for an oven lasagna.

    Here you go! I haven't tried this in the crock pot, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. I've also used canned chicken in it. Cheese can be whatever you prefer - we like Monterey Jack.

    Mexican Lasagna

    12 lasagna noodles
    2 cans cream of chicken soup
    8 oz. sour cream
    1/4 cup milk
    3 cups cooked, diced chicken
    1 1/4 tsp. cumin
    1/2 tsp. garlic powder (I use more)
    1/2 cup sliced green onions
    1 small can sliced black olives
    1 bell pepper, chopped
    3 cups shredded cheese
    1 cup crushed tortilla chips
    Cilantro (optional)

    Mix chicken, soup, sour cream, milk, cumin and garlic in large bowl

    Grease pan (or crock pot )

    Layers:

    1 1/4 cup chicken mixture
    4 noodles
    1 1/4 cup chicken mix
    Green onions and Cilantro
    1 cup cheese
    4 noodles
    1 1/4 cup chicken mix
    Olives and green pepper
    1 cup cheese
    4 noodles
    Remaining chicken mix

    Bake @ 350, uncovered for 30 minutes.
    Sprinkle with crushed chips and remaining cheese.
    Bake 15-20 minutes more
    Let stand before cutting

    I'm guessing the crock pot time would be about the same as the other recipe. If you try it, let me know how it is!

    I totally agree, myrosiedog! I have tried this twice and both times I overcooked it! (both times, I was leaving the house so couldn't really assess when it was done!) The noodles were very mushy that the family said "yuck". I really think it can be done around 4 hours (or even less!) on low. I am determined to try again sometime but just really watch the cooking time. Definitely was waaaay overdone at 6 hours on low.
