Dollar Store Cowboy Casserole


Dollar Store Cowboy Casserole

If cowboys ate dollar store food during cattle drives, then they would probably eat this Dollar Store Cowboy Casserole recipe. Chock full of vegetables and spices, this low cost recipe may be far tastier than you would think. Serve this cowboy food-inspired casserole as a zesty side dish or as a meat free main dish option.


Every dollar store is different, and not all of them may carry these ingredients.

If you do not want this casserole to be spicy, omit the jalapenos and use plain diced tomatoes instead of the diced tomatoes with green chilies.
