Crock Pot Cowboy Casserole


Crock Pot Cowboy Casserole is a hearty meal and combines all of our favorite ingredients into one dish. I knew this snowy weekend would be a perfect time to create a Crock Pot meal the whole family would love.

This was our second weekend of snow.  Last weekend we went to the local Christmas Tree Farm to take our family pictures.  It was a beautiful picture with fresh snow on the ground.  Christmas cards were sent out this weekend.  For me, I am running way ahead of schedule. 

This weekend consisted of the husband hunting, the boys enjoying the Purdue basketball game, and Macie had basketball practice.  Sunday was a day to stay home and cook.  All day.  We had four crock pots going!  We didn't get as much snow this weekend as anticipated, but kids already have a two-hour delay on Monday morning.

I wanted to share this Crock Pot Cowboy Casserole. I made it last weekend, and the family and some girl friends were the first to try it out. Needless to say, it was a hit, and I had to make it again! 


When I think of a cowboy casserole, I know this is going to be a very hearty and healthy dinner!  Throw it in the crock pot and let it cook up.  This 6 quart Crock Pot is the perfect size.   I could see cowboys on the prairie throwing this meal in a big pot over the fire for their dinner.

  Cut up about 6 potatoes, peel them or keep the skins on them. These are from our garden, so the skins are thin and I think they are so good with the skins on!  Cut up a onion and mince garlic and add on top.

I added two pounds of sausage here. Brown it up and put it over the potatoes.  Sausage adds so much favor here, add ground beef if you like.

Add a can of diced tomatoes.  If you have stewed tomatoes from your garden, add a jar of that, and that is all the juice you need, don't add the water in the recipe.  Have a favorite vegetable your cowboys would love? Throw it in here! We added peas!

Drain and rinse a can of kidney beans.  Add over the tomatoes.  Add water.  Place crock pot on low and let it cook 7-8 hours.

Check out this awesome Colts Crock Pot!  Once you have the troops rounded up, in my case, it's the indians! Add the shredded cheese on top.  Place the lid back on, and let the cheese melt.  Serve immediately.  Makes great left overs as well.

looks yummy!

Unknown said...

I make a different version of this, with ground beef and red potatoes, but I love the idea of using sausage for more flavor!

Crystal Kellner said...

That sounds delicious too! We have a lot of pork left over from raising pigs and potatoes from our summer garden!

Crystal Kellner said...

Thanks for stopping by Leeann and Cobie!

Gretchen Bell said...

Is this Italian sausage or breakfast sausage?

Crystal Kellner said...

HI Gretchen, I would say this is similar to Italian sausage. Plenty of seasonings are already included in the sausage!

Loved this casserole! Do you think the ingredients could be put together, frozen, and then used later as a freezer meal? Thank you!

Crystal Kellner said...

Thanks for stopping by Ane'! I am not sure about freezing the potatoes because they have such high water content, and they might turn out too mushy, but I think everything else could be frozen. Then, the only thing you would need to prep is the potatoes! Enjoy!

Christine @ myblissfulmess said...

This looks wonderful, and perfect for a weeknight meal now that all the kiddos are back to school and life just got a lot busier. Thanks for this!

Unknown said...

Okay quick question... have you ever cooked this on high for 4-5 hours instead? Is it not worth trying? I wanted to make it for tonight and I only have 6 hours of cooking time left. :/

Crystal Kellner said...

Amanda, thank you for stopping by! I think this casserole will be fine to cook on high for 4-5 hours! I hope you and your family enjoy it this evening!

Unknown said...

I did try it and cooked at 5 hours on high. It turned out great and was a hit with the hubby. So that was a win! Thanks for the easy recipe ❤️

Crystal Kellner said...

Amanda, so glad you loved this casserole!

Unknown said...

So I'm not a cooking genius by any stretch, but I'm guessing this doesn't get stirred the entire cooking time? Making this for the wife and kids. I'm not going to stir it, due to the stacking of the ingredients I'm guessing not to stir? Thanks.

Crystal Kellner said...

Troy, thanks for stopping by my blog! This recipe does not require any stirring! Enjoy!

Unknown said...

How many servings is this (roughly)?

Laura Weseman said...

This looks yummy I have to try it.

Unknown said...

What size cans of kidney beans and diced tomatoes do you recommend?

Unknown said...

Do I need to drain the tomatoes & green chillis first before adding them?
