Jalapeno Popper Cheesy Potatoes

Let’s make an easy side dish!

To get started, you will use frozen diced potatoes. This makes it a time-saver! You will also need fresh jalapenos, salt, pepper, paprika, evaporated milk, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, butter, and panko bread crumbs.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare a 9×13 baking dish by spraying with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the frozen potatoes, diced jalapeno, salt, pepper, paprika, evaporated milk, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and pepper jack cheese.

Spread the potato mixture in the casserole dish and top with chopped bacon.

Combine the melted butter and bread crumbs and sprinkle over the top of the casserole.

Top with sliced jalapenos.

Bake the casserole in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, until the bread crumbs are toasted and the sauce is bubbling. Allow the casserole to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
