TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 65 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound uncooked chorizo or Johnsonville® Hot Ground Sausage
  • 2-1/2 pounds medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook chorizo over medium heat until meat is fully cooked; drain. Place chorizo on several layers of paper towel; blot with additional paper towels.
  • 2. In a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish, layer half of the potatoes, onion and chorizo. Repeat layers.
  • 3. In a small saucepan, combine the broth, cream cheese, cream and salt. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until liquid is reduced to about 1-1/2 cups. Remove from the heat; stir in 1 cup Mexican cheese blend until melted. Pour over chorizo.
  • 4. Cover and bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with remaining Mexican cheese blend. Bake, uncovered, 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 8 servings.
