Texas Baked Potato Casserole Recipe @pinch

Creamy and loaded with flavor, this fantastic baked potato casserole is meant to serve a crowd. The sour cream mixture with ranch adds tons of flavor. We love the addition of green chiles to give this side dish a Tex-Mex feel. It's layered with lots of cheese and topped with bacon and bits of green onion. Yum! We've had this at our family reunion for years! It's always been a hit with everyone. I always bake the potatoes a day or two before and refrigerate. It makes cooking time very short!

Ingredients :
  • 8-10 large potatoes
  • baked
  • 2 stick(s) butter
  • softened
  • 32 ounce(s) sour cream
  • 10 slice(s) bacon
  • fried
  • 1 bunch(es) green onions
  • sliced
  • 1 can(s) green chilies
  • drained & chopped (4 oz)
  • 4 cup(s) cheddar cheese
  • shredded
  • 1 package(s) ranch dressing
  • dry
  • - salt and pepper
  • to taste
Intructions :
  • Bake potatoes and refrigerate the night before. They are easy to handle when you go to slice them. Mix ranch dressing
  • green chilies
  • and sour cream the night before. It gives it time to marry the flavors (but not necessary).
  • Also
  • go ahead and fry the bacon and crumble it. Stick in the refrigerate overnight.
  • Also
  • slice the green onions and put them in the refrigerator. The more you do the night before
  • the easier it is the day of the BBQ or party. It's easy peasy!
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice potatoes with a mandolin (that way potatoes warm evenly). Use a casserole dish 9X13 or larger if you have one. Spray with PAM or whatever you like
  • or even butter it. You don't want it to stick.
  • Put a layer of potatoes.
  • Then a layer of butter and then part of the sour cream mixture.
  • Then a layer of cheese.
  • Start over with the layers ending with the cheese.
  • Top with bacon and bake for 35-45 minutes.
  • Once baked
  • top with green onions. I usually put the green onions in a bowl
  • set them aside
  • and let them help themselves as some don't like onions at all. Enjoy! ]
