  • 5-7L slow cooker


  • 1 kg beef mince
  • 410 gram can condensed tomato soup
  • 400 gram can diced tomatoes
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 kg bag of frozen potato hash browns (see note in step 3)
  • 2 cups grated cheese


  • Combine all ingredients (except the hash browns and cheese) in the slow cooker and mix to combine
  • Cook on low for 4hrs
  • Cover with frozen hash browns in a single layer
    Note:  I used a large rectangle slowcooker.  If you are using a round or oval one you may find potato gems/tater tots easier to assemble in that shape.  Any frozen potato hash brown type product will work.  Just keep it to a single layer
  • Cook on low for an additional 2hrs
  • Top with grated cheese and give an additional 20mins to melt well
  • Serve with side salad

    Made this for the first time and it did not disappoint. Has lots of flavour and my husband went back for seconds.
    I will be adding some jalapeños and using taco seasoning pkts next time but was still an absolutely delicious meal.
