 Ingredients You’ll Need

– 2 lbs. Ground beef
– 1 Large bag frozen tater tots
– 1 cup Onion, chopped
– 2 tsp. Minced garlic
– ½ cup Milk
– 1 can Cream of onion soup
– 1 can of corn, drained
– ¼ cup Sour cream
– 2 cups Shredded cheddar cheese
– Salt and pepper to taste


1. **Preheat and Prepare:** Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9×13 baking dish to ensure your casserole doesn’t stick.

2. **Layer the Tater Tots:** Spread half of the frozen tater tots in a single layer at the bottom of the baking dish. This forms the deliciously crispy base of your casserole.

3. **Cook the Beef Mixture:** In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef and chopped onion until the beef is browned and the onions are softened. Drain any excess grease from the skillet.

4. **Add Flavor:** Stir in the minced garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds until fragrant. Then, mix in the cream of onion soup, milk, drained corn, sour cream, 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Allow the flavors to meld together beautifully.

5. **Layer and Bake:** Spread the savory beef mixture evenly over the layer of tater tots in the baking dish. Next, add another layer of tater tots on top of the beef mixture. Finally, sprinkle the remaining shredded cheddar cheese over the tater tots for that irresistible cheesy goodness.

6. **Bake to Perfection:** Place the casserole in the preheated oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until the tater tots are golden brown and crispy, and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

7. **Serve and Enjoy:** Once baked to perfection, remove the cowboy casserole from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. Dish out generous portions and savor the delightful flavors of the Old West with each bite.
