Name: Renie's Cheesy Potatoes & Onions



Yield: about 6 servings

Comments: 12/05/2011 - Substituted one yellow onion for the three sweet onions; used one teaspoon garlic powder & 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper. Only microwaved 6 minutes before cheese and 2 after. Should have gone a little longer. Jalapeño was very strong.
11/17/2012 - Used 2 medium red potatoes, 1/2 sweet onion and 1 cup of bouillon in a casserole dish. Went for the full 20 minutes and then 2 1/2 minutes after the cheese added. Did not use cayenne pepper or jalapeño. Good!
1/31/2015 - Used 2 large red potatoes, a sweet onion and 1 cup of bouillon, which filled the one-qt casserole dish. Topped with several spoons of ChiChi's chopped green chilis.
2/27/2016 - I substituted 3 Russet potatoes, 2 yellow onions, 2 cloves of garlic chopped, and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper. They filled a 2-quart casserole dish. I microwaved it for 20 minutes, stirring at 10, and then topped with 1 cup (about 4 oz) of shredded cheddar and a 4 1/2 oz can of Old El Paso chopped green chilis. Then I microwaved it for 5 more minutes. This made about 5 servings. Gail added some hot sauce. I served it with steamed broccoli.
11/3/2016 - I used two medium red potatoes and one red onion with 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. Otherwise, I did as on 2/27/2016. It was just a little juicy, but not bad. We made four servings.
6/10/2017 - Used 3 large red potatoes, half a large yellow onion, and enough vegetable broth to cover the bottom of the 1.5 quart microwave dish. The potatoes were cut in 1/2 inch cubes and were done in 20 minutes. I mixed the can of chopped green chilis into the mixture at the 20-minute mark.
10/15/2019 - I used 2 Russet potatoes, that had been peeled, and one sweet onion. I included the spices, 2 teaspoons of garlic and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, in the chicken broth. I also added one leftover chicken breast, chopped up, when I added the cheese and chilis. The cheese was Monterey Jack. Served with green salad and roasted asparagus.
5/25/2023 - I used 2 unpeeled, Russet potatoes. one Sweet onion, a can of chopped green chilis, and about 3 cups of freshly shredded Cheddar. I forgot to apply oil to the 2-quart casserole dish and added enough chicken broth to cover the bottom. The potatoes were well done in 20 minutes, and I cooked it for another 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
