DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Grease a 13x9 baking dish.
  • Mix together the first 8 ingredients through the first 2 cups of shredded cheese.
  • Mix together the sour cream, salsa, cilantro, garlic, cumin and salt and stir into the potato mixture until it's well coated.
  • Spread mix into prepared baking dish and top with remaining cup of cheese.
  • Bake for 60 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and top with fresh chopped tomatoes and sliced green onions.
  • Can serve right away, but sauce will thicken more if you let it sit 10-15 minutes.
  • Serve with sour cream and hot sauce. This is really good served alongside a crisp salad.
