Preparation / Directions:
Foil handles make it easier to lift Mexican tortilla stack meals or meat loaves out of the Crock-Pot. To make the handles: Tear off three 20 x 3-inch strips of heavy foil or use regular foil folded to double thickness. Crisscross the foil strips in a spoke design.
If preparing a Mexican tortilla stack meal: place the foil strips in a spoke design in the Crock-Pot. Then layer the tortillas and meat and cheese mixtures on top of the foil in the Crock-Pot.
If preparing a meat loaf: place the foil handles on a large sheet of waxed paper. Shape the meat loaf on the spoke design. Lift the ends of the handles to transfer the loaf to the Crock-Pot.
When ready to serve, simple lift the foil handles from the Crock-Pot and remove the meal to a serving dish.
