Cowboy Casserole

Mr. E is all about Cowboys!!!  I have his room decorated in a 'lil cowpoke theme, he has boots, cowboy hat, holsters,cowboy pistols, and all!! 

Sometimes my sweet Mr. E can be a picky eater.  I know, hard to believe any child would automatically love anything placed before them.  Well Mr. E used to eat anything set before him, including collard greens!!  Somewhere along the way he changed.  I am not sure when it happened, it was somewhat gradual.  Now he seems to be in full blown picky eater mode. 

When I found this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine I knew he would eat it. 

Cowboy Casserole, it is just a different name for a Tater Tot Casserole, but Mr. E ate it happily!

Here is what you need:

1 lb ground beef
2 cans whole kernel corn, drained
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup cheddar cheese, divided
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp pepper
4 cups frozen tater tots

In a large skillet cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink. 

Stir in corn, soup, 1/2 cup cheese, milk, sour cream, onion powder, and pepper.

Place 1/2 the tater tots on the bottom of a sprayed 9x 13 pan. 

Layer the beef mixture and remaining tater tots.

Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

Bake uncovered at 375 for 20-25 minutes, until it is nice and bubbly.

Now it is time to enjoy!

Happy Baking!
