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."

    Very good! Because there is no seasonings listed here I assumed the season packet was to be used dry. Sprinkled on before the cheese. But, to make things easier, I added sliced potatoes to a large bowl. Sprinkled on the seasoning packet and toss to coat. Then continue with recipe layering on baking sheet. They turned out delicious. These would make a great appetizers as well.

    Do you just prepare ranch dressing as per package directions or just sprinkle the powder on the potato?
