EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

You can use salsa in place of the picante sauce in this recipe.

There's no need to peel garlic cloves when you use a garlic press. Simply pop the clove, skin and all, into the press, then squeeze. The garlic flesh will be forced through the mesh, while the skin stays in the press.

Frozen potato nuggets also come in onion flavor and in mini-size nuggets. Try one of these to complement this casserole.
