Reviews forPepper Jack Potatoes
"I've made these potatoes a few times and we really love them. I use the pepper jack cheese as it adds a bit more flavor, just personal preference. Added a small can of diced green chilies once too. Very good!"
"My family loves this recipe! We've made it for others as well, all with positive comments!"
"It's rare that I don't like a Taste of Home recipe, but I didn't care for this one at all. It had great potential, but I didn't find it very flavorful. Perhaps tinkering with the spice combination may help. If you're looking for a nice bite, I would definately use the pepper jack vs. the monterey jack cheese. I used the monterey jack and it just didn't do anything for it."
"strongly recomended!!! exellent reciepe!!!"
