This is a different twist on the traditional cheesy potatoes. It has a "kick" to it from the pepper cheese. I received this from a friend and have made it many times since. I have received many recipe requests.

Meh. It was okay. Sure was salty. I had a jar of pimentos that have been living in my fridge for about a YEAR now. Now that they're used up, ill leave em out next time and add more ff onions.

A real hit at my house! I used cream of chicken verde soup and omitted the pimentos (personal taste) but otherwise made as written. Had I thought, I would have replaced the pimentos with chopped green chilis. Nice twist on an old favorite! Thanks for posting.

Absolutely scrumptious. Creamy and flavorful. Instead of hashbrowns, I used thin slices of fresh potatoes and cooked them 50 minutes. I was worried about the jalapeno in the cheese being too hot for my kidlets, but it was just fine. We all had seconds.
