Green Chile Scalloped Potatoes ~ A southwest spin on one of my favorite fall dishes. Tender potatoes in a creamy green chile béchamel sauce topped with melty pepper jack cheese.
Growing up scalloped potatoes were always one of my favorite dishes. There is just something delicious about a bite full of creamy, tender potatoes topped with melty cheese.
I can remember my mom leaving them in the oven just a little too long so that the cheese would almost burn around the edges… that was the best part!
When I saw the topic for this month;s 12 Blogger round-up I was tickled. Why not give my favorite potato dish a southwest kick by adding green chiles and tons of spicy pepper jack cheese. Green chiles add a ton of flavor without them being overwhelming.
I mean they have to compete with these other amazing potato recipes…
