Tips & Tricks To Make The Best Hashbrown Chicken Jalapeño Casserole Recipe:

  • To make this dish even easier, you can use rotisserie chicken. Also the casserole can be made with leftover turkey, it turns out delicious.
  • If you prefer the casserole super spicy, add more jalapeños and you can also add some hot sauce into the ricotta cheese mixture.
  • Cook the hash browns per package direction and 5 minutes before the casserole is done, turn on the broiler for a crispy finish.
  • This meal is loaded with cheese, don’t skip it, its what makes it so creamy and comforting.
  • Mozzarella cheese can also be substituted with provolone cheese or sharp cheddar. Also, spicy Pepper Jack cheese would be a great substitute.
  • The sweet corn is optional, you can skip it if you don’t like corn, but it adds a nice texture and sweet flavor.

  35. Do you think this dish would still be good minus the jalapenos ????

  36. Nothing like a cheesy casserole to scream comfort food!

  37. It can’t get any better than this. Thank you for sharing.

  38. If making this dish a couple days before eating, would you recommend baking and then reheating or throwing it in the fridge after adding the hashbrowns and then cooking the whole thing per the directions the day we’re going to eat it? How do you think freezing it would work?

    • Hi Kaylan –

      1. You can definitely reheat it, we did that and it was great. If you choose to do so, I would recommend to skip the broil part when you bake the dish since you won’t serve it right away, and when you preheat it, use the broiler then, to add a nice crunchy to the hash browns. Also, wrap the dish tightly with foil or plastic wrap when you store it in the fridge.
      2. You can also throw everything in and cook when ready to it, but also, what do you mean a couple of days? 2-3 days is fine, more I would not recommend. Also, if you can cook the hash browns when ready to eat it would be best!
      3. Yes, you can do this too, it freezes well. Again, I would recommend not freezing the hashbrowns and cooking them when ready to it for the best results.

      hope these helped!
      Catalina
