This recipe came about because I had planned on having Chili and Baked Potatoes...but I really didn't feel like a big baked potato. So I decided to make some quick hashbrowns...they're so much yummier anyway...lots of flavor on a little piece of potato and a little crispy-ness.
I figured if people can have Chili-Cheese French Fries, then we could certainly do the same thing with hashbrowns!
I really liked this...it was yummy, and filling, and QUICK! And things always taste better to the cook who didn't have to slave over it!
This is all you need:
Potatoes (I have the hardest time getting through a bag! We just don't eat them that often!)
I just microwave my potatoes for 8-9 minutes in the microwave (five small potatoes). I have a splatter cover in my microwave, and I like to put that over my potatoes so they don't dry out. You could always bake the potatoes in the oven...that is, if you are better than I am and actually think about dinner before 5 PM! ; )
Heat up the canned chili and top the hashbrowns with chili, cheese, and a little sour cream or diced onion, if desired.
Have a great week!
