Expert Tips

  • To make this hearty casserole even creamier, top with dollops of sour cream as a garnish.
  • You will often see Hungarian paprika labeled as either sweet or hot. The sweet paprika isn’t sweet, but does have an earthy, fruity flavor. Hot paprika can add quite a bit of heat to a dish, much like cayenne.
