Step aside, plain ol’ potatoes! This cheesy potato casserole feeds a family (and then some!) with more flavor per square inch than your 13x9 has ever seen. A tortilla chip topping yields a crunchy-creamy texture you won’t be able to resist, and chopped green chiles, cool sour cream, zippy jalapeño peppers and loads of cheese take these Mexican-inspired potatoes to the next level.

Steps

    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix sour cream, soup, green chiles and onion. Stir in hash browns. Fold in cubed and shredded cheeses; pour into baking dish.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Gold or yellow tortilla chips are thicker and more golden in color than regular tortilla chips. Their sturdiness means they hold up well in a baked casserole.
  • tip 2
    Swap the shredded cheeses in this recipe for your favorite melty varieties, such as Monterey Jack, Colby-Jack or cheddar.
  • tip 3
    Serve this cheesy potato casserole with your favorite chicken dish for a hearty meal.
