  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 5-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell peppers and jalapeño chile; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are just crisp-tender. Add flour and taco seasoning mix. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in tomatoes and green chiles. Heat to simmering. Remove from heat; stir in chicken, 1 cup of the cheese and 1 cup of the sour cream.
  • 3
    Place half of the frozen potatoes in single layer in baking dish. Spoon chicken mixture on top. Top with remaining frozen potatoes, then remaining 1 cup cheese.
  • 4
    Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until casserole edges are bubbly and potatoes are lightly browned. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with salsa and remaining 1 cup sour cream.

Expert Tips

  • For a little extra heat, substitute a serrano chile for the jalapeño.
  • Serving this with a hot salsa in addition to the medium salsa will allow your guests the option to turn the heat up, while still allowing your more sensitive diners to enjoy the milder casserole.
