Southwest Hashbrown Casserole

Southwest Hashbrown Casserole

My son's favorite recipe might just become your family's favorite too!

  • Kid Friendly

A comforting casserole that's as easy to make as it is delicious.




My oldest son loves this dish. If he planned dinner, we would be eating Southwest Hashbrown Casserole every night. It is super easy to make, doesn’t take much prep time, and is delicious! Try my healthy variations to get each serving down to around 300 calories.

Personally, I only use Simply Potatoes Southwestern Style hashbrowns. I also prefer to make this casserole using the cheddar flavored french fried onions although I can’t find them in the stores around me anymore. They do make a jalapeno version now though!

This casserole freezes well – just leave off the french fried onions.

Low fat variation

To make this recipe as low fat as possible, use 95%+ lean ground beef and fat free soup, low fat sour cream, and 2%/reduced fat cheese. Don’t use fat free cheese because it doesn’t melt right and tastes weird. The casserole will still taste amazing – promise!
