One of the nice things about a slow cooker is how you can make a complete meal in it, with all the fixin’s! This week’s recipe is just that, a full meal in your crock pot, Crock Pot Cowboy Casserole! Casseroles aren’t just for your oven! This one is full of potatoes, veggies, meat, beans, and of course, CHEESE! All the cowboys and cowgirls in your house will love it.
CROCK POT COWBOY CASSEROLE
1 onion, chopped
1 lbs. ground beef, browned and drained
6 medium potatoes, sliced (I used about 10 red potatoes)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can corn (drained) or 1 cup fresh or frozen corn
1 (16 oz.) can low sodium kidney bean, with the juices
1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes, with the juice
1 (10.5 oz.) can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
This recipe needs a 6qt crock pot. Mix all ingredients together EXCEPT the cheese in the crock. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-ish. Then sprinkle cheese on top and continue to cook for another half hour to an hour. Scoop out to serve.
