I originally published this Texas Hash recipe in 2011. Back in February when we took a trip back up to our old stomping grounds; Illinois. While we were there, I gathered up some of the recipes my mom had handwritten in one of her cookbooks. I came across one called “Texas Hash” with my grandma’s name next to it. So I thought, sure, I’ll give that a try. So I wrote it down and brought it back home with me to South Carolina. I gave the recipe a try tonight and it was a huge hit!

My grandma was a huge fan of casseroles. While I never really had them (we didn’t live close enough), my mom and dad always talk about how she was the queen of casseroles – and would whip one up with ingredients she had around her kitchen.

In an effort to honor my grandma with her recipe, I will call this recipe, Texas Hash Casserole, because it’s totally a casserole! You begin by cooking some of the ingredients in a skillet and then transferring them to a casserole dish where you bake it for one hour – totally casserole-ish!

Update: Since I’ve made this recipe now several times, I have added in shredded cheddar cheese. I just feel like it adds more flavor (plus, I now live in the cheese capital of Wisconsin, so everything must include cheese!) I’ve also changed the recipe to include more rice…something my kids love!

This recipe is truly packed with so much flavor, even though only a little chili powder and salt are added for seasonings. It’s such a warm and comfort food type dish…that it goes great on a cold night for dinner!

Interestingly enough, I really found that this recipe tastes very similar to my most favorite food in the entire world, {besides Gino’s East Chicago Pizza, lol} STUFFED PEPPERS!! I would almost say that this Texas Hash Casserole could be called Stuffed Pepper Casserole…because literally, the ingredients are the same 🙂

Personal note: Back in 2001, my grandma gifted me a recipe book that she had handwritten many family recipes in. This Texas Hash recipe was actually in there 🤠 I share this because I want to save this for forever.

Update: When I began this blog back in 2011, I never intended for it to become what it is today…nor did I understand how to take photos of food 🥴 – so when I go back and edit the old recipe, I like to keep some of my photos. Enjoy 😊

I have no idea what Texas Hash is supposed to go with so I quickly made up some mini cornbread muffins and then topped them with the hash. I also added a dollop of sour cream because I thought it was a little salty. However, when we make this again I will more than likely serve it with some polenta and cheese. *Enjoy!
