Homestyle comfort food at its best! Southwest Hashbrown Casserole is comforting, easy to make, and oh so delicious. Keto and low fat variations included.




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 absolutely delicious! Try my healthy variations to get each serving down to around 300 calories.

Personally, I will only use Simply Potatoes Southwestern Style hashbrowns. Non-flavored hashbrowns don’t cut it, and frozen hashbrowns are kindof a disaster. I also prefer to make this casserole using the cheddar flavored french fried onions although I can’t find them in the stores anymore. They do make a jalapeño flavor 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 shredded cheese. The casserole will still taste amazing – promise! Do not use fat free cheese because it doesn’t melt right and tastes weird.

Keto variation

Use your ground beef of choice, regular soup (I tend to use the “heart healthy” ones), regular fat sour cream, and 2% milk shredded cheese. Instead of french fried onions, use smashed up pork rinds.
