Jalapeno & Cotija Cheese Potato Stack Pie
Pie isn't just for dessert anymore. Stacking thinly sliced potatoes with layers of minced jalapenos and crumbled cotija cheese helps turn ordinary spuds into something truly spectacular...especially when served with salsa and sour cream. —Colleen Delawder, Herndon, Virginia

- 2-1/2 pounds red potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
