    Stir mixture. Top with Cheddar cheese; cover, and cook on Low heat setting 3 to 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Top with bacon and green onions. Serve with sour cream.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To test potatoes’ tenderness without releasing too much heat from the slow cooker, slightly lift lid, and slide bamboo skewer into center of mixture. Potatoes should be very tender.
  • tip 2
    To ensure even cooking of potatoes, make sure to fully cover potatoes with beef mixture.
