Additional Notes

Adapted from

I love that this Slow Cooker Cowboy Supper uses common pantry staples and can easily be adapted to suit your family’s taste. For instance, I used Yukon Gold potatoes, Ranch Style beans, and diced tomatoes with jalapenos, but you can use the type of beans, veggies, and tomatoes you have on hand.

If you don’t care for onion soup mix, season the potatoes how you’d like and maybe add a chopped onion.

This slow cooker meal idea ROCKS!

We loved the delicious melted cheese texture. YUM! I think easy weeknight slow cooker meals are such a lifesaver. This one is a winner for sure!
