I love the combination of the two kinds of potatoes and the sour cream with cilantro makes it so fresh tasting. A great summer recipe. And it is so easy and quick to make. A friend of mine made it a while ago. I think she found the recipe in a cookbook, but I have no idea which one. This is now one of my favorite side dishes and my kids love it too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F; grease baking dish (11x7x1 1/2 inches).
  2. Peel potatoes. Cut into 1/4 inch slices. Spread potatoes in baking dish.
  3. Drizzle with butter and sprinkle with salt. Stir to coat.
  4. Cover and bake 45 minutes or until tender.
  5. Mix remaining ingredients. Spoon sour cream mixture over potatoes. Bake uncovered 5 minutes.
  6. Tips: The original recipe called for margarine but I prefer butter. I usually leave out the chives but it still tastes delicious. Instead of a fresh chili you can use a 4oz can of green chilies (drained). Sometimes I double the sour cream mixture because we love it so much.

Great recipe, DH loved it. I'm not a huge fan of the sour cream and chives flavor, so I thought it was good, but not much different from that. If you love sour cream and chives you will love this!

Ideal for a gathering of friends, this was very much appreciated by mine!!! Very easily prepared, I used the chives, having plenty in my garden, but, I must confess, omitted the chilli, I wanted the youngsters to eat it! A different potato bake, I loved the combination of the two potatoes, definitely on my keepers list!

REALLY AN OUTSTANDING POTATO CASSEROLE, & for me, the inclusion of the sweet potatoes makes all the difference in the world, as did the cilantro cream sauce ~ In fact, I took your suggestion & doubled the sauce! One thing I didn't do, however, was to peel the potatoes ~ I like the taste & texture of the peeling so left the taters that way! Thanks for a wonderful keeper recipe!
