By now, you should know I am a sissie when it comes to hot dishes !

This recipe for a chili Cowboy Casserole can be adapted to suit your tastes. More or less chilies,,,, up to you.

Mine turned out with just a hint of hot or maybe more like a medium heat.

Since it is made in the Slow-Cooker and needs no attention at all until done, you can go about doing whatever you like in the meantime.

I prepared mine, left it on low to do it’s thing and hubby and I left home to spend some time out with the kids.

When we returned, the house was filled with the most delicious smell and we could not wait to tuck in !

This Chili Cowboy Casserole is a no-fuss, delicious Slow-Cooker meal ~ smells amazing ! and tastes even better !

I would suggest that if you want to cook this in a shorter period of time, to set your slow-cooker on high and cook for 3 – 4 hours, otherwise, as per the recipe, 6 – 8 hours on low.

Oh, this looks like something my husband and I would both love. I don't have any tomato soup right now but would love to make this today. I wonder if a can of chopped tomatoes could sub for the soup? Or some pasta sauce, thinned out a bit? What do you think?

Pam, I think pasta sauce would work just fine. If the thickness is more or less the same as the soup it should work. I think even canned chopped tomatoes blitzed a minute or so would be totally ok. Let me know how the casserole turned out and which you have used ?

We love this recipe. I've made it a couple of times, already. Thank you. :) I add just a bit, maybe half a cup, of medium salsa to the bottom layer with the peppers and onion because I love spicy. ;) Also, I add a few peas, a cup at most, between the potatoes and beans, you can barely taste them but it adds to the 'veg' content. We will make this often. :)

I'm making this right now. But I'm spices? Chili powder, cumin, garlic? As it is, I used 3 cans of kidney beans, 2 cans tomato soup, got lost with the potatoes, and a can of diced tomatoes. Wish me luck. Should be done in 4-1/5 to 5 hrs.

It came out awesome. The diced tomatoes and the extra can of soup made a terrific sauce. Just right. My wife has plans next time, to try stew meat, button mushrooms, baby corn, turnips, and carrots. Should call it "Cowboy Stew". Thank you for the recipe. Oh. Almost forgot. By the time we got to the sliced potatoes, my 6qt. crockpot was full. Had to put it into an 8qt. for the rest of the ingredients. Good thing we used a cooking bag. Eassy to transsfer over.
