 Mexican Potatoes
Cheese, jalapeno pepper, sour cream and green onions top these pretty potato slices, seasoned with dry ranch dressing mix. "I love to serve them to guests, and they love to eat them," notes Tony Horton of Van Buren, Arkansas. "You can use them as an appetizer or even as a side dish."
