Tailgating Crockpot Cowboy Tabasco Casserole
- 1 pound mild Italian sausage (make use of ground turkey for a healthy option)
- 1 cup yellow onion, chopped
- 1 pound baby/petite red potatoes, thinly sliced (no need to peel)
- One green bell pepper, chopped
- One can (15 ounces) fire-roasted corn, drained
- One can (14.5 ounces) dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- One can (14.5 ounces) fire-roasted diced tomatoes
- Two teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 and 1/4 teaspoon TABASCO® Sauce
- 1/2 cup low-sodium beef broth
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- Fine sea salt
- Freshly cracked pepper
- 1 cup low-fat Colby Jack cheese, freshly grated
- Fresh cilantro (optional)
In a large frying pan cook over a medium to high heat, including the sausage and chopped yellow onion. Brown the sausage then drain off fat. Include sausage and onions to a 6-quart crockpot. Top with thin sliced red potatoes.
Include chopped bell pepper, fire-roasted corn, kidney beans, fire-roasted diced tomatoes, minced garlic, TABASCO Sauce, beef broth, and chili powder. Season with salt and pepper; I apply one teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. You should still add more at the end.
Mix all together and cover the crockpot.
Put in crockpot on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-7 hours or until potatoes are tender. When finished cooking, taste and adjust salt and pepper to liking.
Include freshly grated cheese in an even layer over everything and permit to melt. Serve hot along with extra TABASCO Sauce as needed and fresh cilantro.
