Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole


I kicked up the flavor in this cheesy hashbrown casserole by adding diced green chilies and topping it with crispy fried onions instead of the traditional cornflake mix! Each creamy bite has a little heat from the chilies, a hint of sour cream, and just the right amount of crunch from the onions. It really is comfort food at its best- perfect for a lazy weekend brunch!
