How to make Colorado Cowboy Casserole

Step 1: Ready the oven and preheat to 375 degrees.

Step 2: Apply cooking spray in a 2-quart casserole dish.

Step 3: Place a skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium. Add a little oil then add the ground beef until it turns brown. Turn off the heat and drain the excess fat.

Step 4: Turn the heat to medium and add the garlic, onions, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Once cooked, turn off the heat.

Step 5: Pour in the milk, cream of mushroom soup, undrained chilis, 1/2 cup of cheese, and drained corn into the skillet. Stir until well-mixed.

Step 6: Transfer the mixture into the prepared casserole dish. Spread the other 1/2 cup of shredded cheese followed by the tater tots. (The amount of cheese is optional. You can always add more.)

Step 7: Place in the oven and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until the texture becomes bubbly and the color turns light brown.

Step 8: Remove from the oven and let it sit on a wire rack for at least 5 minutes.

Step 9: Serve and enjoy!
