Introducing: Cowboy’s Meal.  A super, super good hodge podge meal made up of the most satisfying ingredients with a very Tex-Mex vibe that I’m here for! Eat it as in a bowl, add to shells for taco night, or throw an egg on it and make it a breakfast skillet!

lodge skillet filled with corn, ground beef, pinto beans, cilantro, and potatoes

On the very last day of 2017, my mama took little Pepper so Erica and I could spend a night together without a toddler. The temps were in the negatives and it was just all around unpleasant. We opted to rent a bunch of movies, make dinner at home, and eat our weight in stove top popcorn and starbursts. That’s actually my favorite kind of night and to be honest, the perfect way to end a great year. I wanted to make something different because well, it was New Year’s Eve and all, but I didn’t feel like spending a ton of time in the kitchen because there were movies, popcorn, and starburst waiting for me in the living room, you know?

So, what’s probably the quickest and easiest meal that I have in my repertoire and that I always have the ingredients on hand for? You guessed it. Poor Man’s Meal! It’s one of my favorite meals and it’s very popular on this ol’ blog! You can read all about it, how much I love it, how I grew up on it, and grab the recipe here. But, I’m me and I still wanted to make something a little different so I decided to just start throwing a bunch of stuff together. I was feelin’ a southwest vibe and seriously, the end result equaled actual magic.

I had a hard time with a name for it at first, but I’ve finally decided on Cowboy’s Meal! I don’t know any cowboys personally, but I do know that they seem to like things like beef, beans, corn, and a lil spice. This was the PERFECT meal to end 2017 with for Eric and I.

I love that Cowboy’s Meal is simple and most importantly, delicious! We ended up loading up the meat/potato/bean mixture into tortillas and piling tomatoes, cheese, and lettuce on those. Y’all… make this and then, do that. It’s delicious on it’s own, but add it to a tortilla blow your own dang mind.

How to make Cowboy’s Meal:

small white bowl full of various spices

You’re going to start off with a homemade and top notch taco seasoning.  I know it seems like a lot, but trust me, you need all these spices to make it perfect. Grab 2 teaspoons chili powder, 2 1/2 teaspoons cumin, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and finally, 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Be sure to keep the garlic powder and kosher salt out. You’ll need a teaspoon of each later for the potatoes.

Stir them all up!

blue dutch oven with cooked seasoned ground beef

 In a hot skillet or dutch oven, add one pound lean ground beef. Break up with spatula very finely. Add taco seasoning mixture to beef when it’s all cooked. Continue to let it cook for about 1-2 minutes then add a small 8 ounce can of tomato sauce to the meat and stir well. Cook for another few minutes together, stirring occasionally. When It’s finished cooking set aside.

potatoes, cilantro, in black skillet

In same skillet (no need to wipe it out) OR you can use a separate one from cooking the beef. Heat 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil and then add 6 cups of frozen hash brown potatoes (you can thaw them out for quicker cooking time too!). Season with 1 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and about 1 teaspoon garlic powder. Continue to cook over medium-high heat until the potatoes are warm and lightly browned. If you need to spray the potatoes with a bit of cooking spray while they are cooking.

When the potatoes are lightly browned and mostly cooked (they won’t get super brown and crispy because of the amount in the pan at once) add in about 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro and let it continue to cook for a minute or two. I recommend this ingredient, but it’s not going to make or break the dish. I know there are weirdo cilantro haters out there. Haha I’m jokin’ with y’all. It adds delicious flavor (says me the gal who may be slightly cilantro obsessed).

skillet with pinto beans and fresh corn

This is where the Cowboy’s Meal party really gets started. Sometimes I’m like a mad scientist and I just keep throwing ingredients into a mixture until I feel like I’m satisfied with the amount of ingredients I’ve foraged out of my fridge and pantry. Ha! But really, these are all wholesome ingredients and this recipe is super budget friendly too!

Add in the corn and canned (drained, but not rinsed) pinto beans and gently stir together and cook together for a minute or two. The picture above shows fresh corn. I highly recommend fresh sweet corn if it’s in season! There’s nothin’ better. You may also use canned or frozen corn, either will work just fine and it’ll still taste yummy! Frozen corn will take a few extra minutes to heat up unless you let it thaw for a bit prior to heating it.

Now add that deliciously seasoned ground beef mixture back into the skillet along with all the other goodies. you try a spoonful of the meat yet? I sure did. Spoiler alert: come back again and make this meat just for plain ol’ taco night. It’s incredible!

GENTLY fold the beef into the skillet. The potatoes are a bit delicate and can mush up. It doesn’t really matter to me, but if you care. Be gentle.

And, you are done!

I’m just saying you should probably round this meal out by heating some tacos shells then adding things like cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and extra cilantro (if that makes ya happy)! These “Cowboy’s Meal Tacos” make me VERY happy.

How good does this look? Seriously one of my favorite recipes to make. If you can believe it leftovers are even better! A couple years ago a skinnyish dish reader shared a photo of her Cowboy’s Meal leftovers for breakfast with a egg on top! I can confirm. It’s delicious.

I’ve never said these words… and I’m not sure I’m using them in the correct context, but I don’t even care. Here it goes:

BOOM. MIC DROP. 

Did I do that right?

Make this.

Have a good day.

    This is one of my husbands favorites!
    But it’s even better the second day – We like to heat oil in a skillet, put the leftovers in, and heat up until they’re crispy. Almost like frying it. Then top with a fried egg and Frank’s Red Hot!
    SO good!

  2. Hey I love this recipe but I SO wish you had left the ww points for the old blue plan on the recipe.. lots of people still use that plan. Do you happen to know it..? Thank you for all the work you do!!

  3. My husband could not get enough of this one! He makes noises (I don’t know how else to describe it, it’s not words) if he is really enjoying what he is eating and he made a lot of happy noises for this one! #top2021

    As we say in my neck of the woods in Ohio, this is SO STINKING GOOD! Cowboy Meal is my family’s favorite and one that the kids request often. Thanks for another AWESOME recipe that helps me keep our family happy and healthy! We appreciate you! #top2021

    This is one of our favorites (but I could say that about SO many of Star’s recipes!). Because we are now empty nesters, I love meals like this that the leftovers freeze great in individual portions to take for work lunches. #top2021

    My friend had just joined ww and was worried that her family wouldn’t want to eat the meals that she made. I sent her this recipe and told her that her three grown boys and husband would never know the difference and I was right! They had no idea that something so good could be good for you! The portion size is perfect!

    I don’t usually comment on these things, but this is one of my favorite meals and one of the few ways I can get my husband to eat a vegetable! I’m still working on getting my son to eat it (he has a weird thing with potatoes), but the longer it takes the more there is for me! Thank you for coming up with all these delicious and easy dishes for us! I love pretty much everything I’ve tried from your blog and continually stalk you for more delightful treats. 🙂

    1. My daughter has a weird thing about potatoes too so I completely understand! Thank you for being here and enjoying the recipes!

    This is a family favorite!!!! Such a flavorful and easy recipe!!! My 19 year old son asked for this once a week. One of many Skinnyish Dish’s recipes I make!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    This recipe has been one of my favorites. Now that we are cutting back on meat, I was wondering if it would still taste as good. I used Gardein Beefless Ground and it was excellent! So happy I can keep the old cowboy in our repertoire!

    1. Thank you so much for letting me know it tastes wonderful with a vegetarian friendly option!

    I made this last night and will be adding it into my rotation. I is so good. I used black beans instead of pinto beans as I am not a fan. I also used Ortega Ranch sauce on top which made it better if that is possible.

  12. Hi. I was just wondering how many ounces the hashed brown potatoes were. I want to make sure I buy the right size.

  13. 5 stars
    This recipe definitely doesn’t get the credit it deserves! Easily one of my favorite meals. It makes a ton and reheats fantastic! I like it with salsa and avocado on top!!

    Since the first time I made this a few years ago it has been in regular rotation!! It was one of the first dinners I made for my boyfriend (now fiance) and he loved it so much that we have it almost weekly now. I like to think it was what tricked him into thinking that I can cook!

    Cowboy Meal has been added to our regular rotation of meals. We love a big bowl as well as filling tortillas with all the toppings. So incredibly yummy! Thank you so much for so many great recipes! @thelisaayers

  16. This is a staple on our menu. Kids eat it in a tortilla, i eat it over a bed of raw spinach and then husband and I eat it scrambled eggs the next breakfast. Makes a great tex mex hash! Well dont with this one. IG handle: @morokin13

    I make this once a month and it is a favorite for my whole family. My kiddos enjoy it and they are super picky eaters! (smeggyhart)

    So I’m not one to usually leave comments, but this recipe is truly one of my family’s faves. I was skeptical as I am not a huge bean lover, this this is almost the perfect dish. One pot, levels of yummy ness, loads of leftovers…what’s not to love?! Thanks for all your delicious recipes! We also love your crock pot lasagna, and your loaded chicken bubble up.

  19. I wasn’t able to find the cubed hash browns at the store I went to last night. Can I still make with shredded? Also, I have black beans in my pantry, would that also work instead of pinto? I understand the points might be different, but just wanted to ask!

  20. 5 stars
    This is one of my favorite meals ever. I make 2-3x the recipe at a time and freeze it in ziploc bags, and defrost for lunch at work 1 or 2 times per week. There is never a time I don’t have it on hand. THANK YOU.

    1. I’m SO happy you enjoy it, Melissa! That’s such a great idea to have it ready to go in portion sizes for lunches!

  21. 5 stars
    My new favorite! I hope no one cuts corners and uses packet taco seasoning because that spice combo was on point!!! Yeah!!

    I’ll add what a way to stretch a meal too. I slapped this on tortillas with some queso and lettuce and ranch. My whole plate still came out to 660 calories for everything ! Woohoo!

    I think I’ve said it before on another comment but you’re a woman after my own heart. I know I can look on your blog and find something to eat that doesn’t taste stale & boring and the portions are bigger. I’m always hungry. I don’t want a 1:4 of whatever and call it day. Not happening.

    I’m just rambling now. Love it. Thanks star ❤️

    This was a great recipe! I used lean ground chicken instead of beef and it came out to 3 points! The flavor is so good! I’m going to use left over with tortillas to mix it up during the week!! My 9 year old son loved it and didn’t even realize it was a healthy meal! He had seconds!

    1. Hi Stacy! SOOOOO happy you loved it and oh my gosh what a happy day when the kids love something too!

  23. WOW! This was such a hit in my house. I love the generous portions, I personally am such a chili lover, this was a fun twist. I used Simply Potato Southwest hash browns. So delicious. This was my first time making one of your recipes. Thanks so much!

  24. 5 stars
    This looked good – I did not expect it to be as good as it was. Absolutely delicious! I’m going to be cooking this so much we get sick of it – ha!

  25. Hi, could I make this with regular potatoes (either yellow or red)? I have a bunch to use up! Would the recipe be the same?

    1. I was thinking of roasting regular potatoes, cubed, in the oven. Would use a lot less oil and they would be crispy.

  26. I am drooling! Can’t wait to try – quick question…Can you use diced white potatoes instead of frozen hashbrowns?

  27. 5 stars
    Holy crap. Yum! I’ve been seeing this recipe floating around on Instagram and finally decided to make it today. It’s super easy and delicious. This is a nice alternative to chili

  28. Soooo good!! I did cheat a little and reloaded the potatoes with a diced zucchini and yellow squash. Trying to watch the carbs . Threw in a few chopped jalapeños too. This is going on my meal prep list! Amazing!

  29. I am wanting to make this this week. I am wondering how much fat is in the hash browns you buy. I can’t buy the brand you use and the ones that I saw when shopping today had different fat content. I want to keep the points value the same as your recipe:)

    1. I’m sorry I don’t have a bag on hand right now so I can’t check that info, but honestly, as long as theirs no additional oils/sugars and just potatoes, maybe salt & pepper then the points should be the exact same. I’ve also used shredded in place of the cubed. I hope that helps, and hope you enjoy!

      1. That’s what I thought. Unfortunately the two bags I looked at had 4g and 8g of fat. I will have to keep looking!

  31. The only way I can get this to add up to 5 points using the WW recipe builder is if I leave out the vegetable oil. Not sure what I am doing wrong?

    1. Never mind. I saw the comment about having to use the specific brand name for hash browns to get it to work. I will have to compare nutritional info when I get home to see if that makes a difference. Thanks for your wonderful recipes!

  32. My family, 3 kids included, loved this recipe and have asked when we can have it again! It will definitely be in our regular rotation. Thank you!

  34. Hi! Planning on making this tomorrow night and my grocery store only had the shredded hash brown potatoes- do you think it makes a difference? Just wondering if I absolutely need to go to another store to pick up diced hash brown potatoes. Thanks!

      1. Update! It was kind of mushy with the shredded hash browns, stil delicious! I just made it again using Potatoes OBrian and it was delicious! Thanks again

  38. I am really looking forward to adding this to the menu for next week. I saw when you first published it and I didn’t read the recipe closely and thought that I would need to dice up raw potatoes so dismissed it. Glad I took another look. I was having the same issue as some of the other folks regarding calculating points. My first issue was that I plugged the ground beef into the calculator accidentally selecting “cooked” instead of raw. The other issue that I found was with the hash brown potatoes. When I specified “Ore Ida” brand hash browns, I got the same 5 points per serving. When I used generic frozen hash browns, the point value for the recipe was 7 points per serving. Hope this info helps out some other folks.

    I made this last night and it was really good! I measured out 6 cups of diced hash browns but it looks like so much… Like way more than 8 servings. Do you usually use an entire 32 oz. bag of hash browns? Idk it just looks like it turned out more although 6 cups of hash browns is a lot.

    1. I’m so happy you enjoyed! Yep, I use 6 cups of frozen hash browns. 6 cups of the hash browns is not a 32 oz bag though. And yep, it’s 8 servings (1.25 cups each) I’m kind of confused on what you’re asking exactly, so if I didn’t answer your question please let me know!

      1. I guess my question is, I had a 32 oz bag of hash browns and measured out 6 cups of it and it almost used the whole bag. Is this normal?

    I’m not a pinto bean lover so going to use black beans in this recipe, that will work too right?

    1. This was really good! My husband and son (non-light eaters) both enjoyed it!
      I DID make a couple changes:
      Left out the potatoes and served it over rice. I used fresh corn because I had some in my fridge. And added some fresh onion and jalapeno when I cooked the beef.
      Yummy 🙂

  56. Hi Star,
    Love your recipes. I had the same issue as Janet, when I entered the recipe and Weight Watchers app I get 8sp? I double-checked ingredient by ingredient to make sure that I didn’t miss something or add too much of something and not sure why I’m getting eight SP?

    1. I’m not sure either. I’ve double checked a couple times now and it’s coming up as 5 Points on my end. Are you entering the ground beef lean 1 lb raw? that’s the only thing I could guess that could be mixed up.

    What was the verdict for if this deliciousnous was made with ground turkey? I am not sure if I see it there! Thank you I am awful at trying to put it in my calculator

    1. I wouldn’t recommend using the 99% lean ground turkey in this recipe. It doesn’t taste right. However it would still taste good with 93% lean ground turkey!

My husband is naturally thin so it’s always been tough for me to be “dieting” while he eats whatever he wants, your recipes are so yummy that we are both eating the same meals and it doesn’t feel like I am being deprived while I am sticking to my points!

    Hi.
    I love your recipes and appreciate ypu.updating everything to reflect the Freestyle program.
    I calculated the cowboy meal and it comes up as 8SP. It wpuld be 5 Freestyle SP if extra.lean ground Turkey is used.

    1. I’m sorry, but I think you might be calculating something wrong. It is 5 points, I just double checked. If you used the nutritional info to calculate it will not match up because the beans and corn are included in the nutritional information.

      1. I get 7 freestyle points using the recipe builder, 12 for ground beef, 12 for oil, and 29 for hash browns divided by 8 servings is 6.6 points per serving….but I’m going to make it this weekend!

      2. I use the Weight Watchers Recipe Builder to calculate the recipes. Different brands of ingredients may affect points though. Hope you love it!

      3. Yes, I used that too. I got 5 originally, but had forgotten to add the oil…Looking forward to it for next weeks meals! Thanks!
