Jalapeno Popper Hash Brown Casserole


I completely went for the cheap thrill with this one. …Actually, I made this for a Thanksgiving pot-luck at work. I have no problem serving 50+ people something I just completely made up the night before. I also have no words for how good this is! Hope my coworkers don’t mind the corner section missing.

Jalapeno Popper Hash Brown Casserole

  • 2 (20oz) packages Simply Potatoes shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 1 (8oz) carton sour cream
  • 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 4 c shredded sharp cheddar, divided (I used a 3-cheddar mix for looks)
  • ½ c unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ c jalapeno slices from a jar, chopped
  • 1 t kosher salt
  • ½ t fresh cracked pepper
  • ½ c jalapeno slices for topping
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • chopped chives for garnish

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, soup, 2 c cheese, butter, chopped jalapenos, salt, and pepper with the potatoes and put in 13×9 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Put in the oven and lay a large piece of foil over. Bake 1-½ hours.

Remove from the oven. Top with the remaining cheese and jalapeno slices. Return to the oven, cover with the sheet of foil again, and cook for another 20 minutes or until potatoes are soft. Remove from the oven and top with bacon and chopped chives. Serves a bunch.

  1. oh my gosh, this looks like the guilty pleasure food to end all guilty pleasure food. next time i have a superbowl party, i’m busting out this recipe (with your permission of course).

  2. Hi Erica, I made this last night. I didn’t have any frozen hash brown potatoes, so i boiled some fresh potatoes and roughly chopped them up. I left out the jalepenos, it tasted great, will definately make this again. Thanks

  4. Hi Erica I want to make this for our work christmas lunch. My question would I be able to do all the major cooking at home, and than add the topping . Take it to work and heat up again with the final toppings on it in a toaster oven. First time making it and serving our spicy food lovers , I don’t want to screw this up.
