    Rollin in the Dough!'s Note:

    I have yet to find a recipe for cheesy potatoes to beat my mother's! Definitely the best comfort food and awesome with a side of ham. This recipe has canned green chilies in it which gives it that extra something to top the usual funeral potatoes!

      I was wondering if any other cream soup would work instead. I observe kosher laws and can not use cream of chicken soup ( not kosher). Other options would be cream of mushroom, celery, or potato.
