Hash brown Chicken Jalapeño Casserole

Hashbrown Chicken Jalapeno Casserole is the epitome of comfort food. Spicy, creamy, loaded with cheese and topped with golden brown hash browns. I knew that the hash browns would make the perfect casserole topping, so I jumped into using them without hesitation. This Hash Brown Chicken Jalapeno Casserole became a family favorite! Layers and layers of delicious things like tender shredded chicken breast, sweet corn, spicy jalapenos, lots and lots of cheese, with a thick and cheesy hash brown layer.

Hash Brown Chicken Jalapeno Casserole Recipe Tips:

  • 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 jalapenos 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.

o my my my...that golden crisp hash brown topping looks to die for!



This looks absolutely heavenly! I love a good hashbrown casserole, and I don't think one could be more perfect.. the creamy layer + jalapenos + chicken! YUM.


Olivia @ Olivia's Cuisine

Hell yeah! Scrumptious! This is my kind of meal.

sorry, got deleted by mistake, working to recover it from my backup files.


lori isner

i really want to make this casserole. does anyone have a link to the recipe?


Hi Lori, the recipe somehow got deleted, I am working with my developer to recover it, it should be up in a few days.


Hi Lori, the recipe has been restored :)



I am loving that cheese shot! Wow!! I may only do the jalapeños on half the dish because I'm the only one who likes that much heat.


Amanda | The Chunky Chef

Oh wow, look at that gooey stretchy cheese!!



I definitely have a thing for hash browns...I really love them. And this casserole is just perfect...definitely something I would love to try!


Lauren @ Hall Nesting

I think you have all of my family's favorites in one dish!


Maryanne | the little epicurean

YUM! This casserole manages to combine all my favs into one dish!


Kathy Norton

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


yes, totally, they are just added for spiciness, but you can skip them, also if you want, you can just add 1 bell pepper instead of the jalapeños.


Jessica | The Novice Chef

Nothing like a cheesy casserole to scream comfort food!


Wilna Simmons

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


thank you :)



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



OMG!!! I'm so glad I found this! It's every great Jalapeno Popper you've ever had in a dinner casserole! It doesn't get better than that. I just finished baking it (following reply to Kaylan) and plan to serve it when everyone gets home. I plan on making the hash browns right before I reheat under the broiler. Thank you Catalina ;)



It seems like a lot to fit in a 9x9 dish, s that a misprint? Should it be a 9x13?


Yes, sorry Meg, please use a 9x13 dish.



Good but very boring. Could have used onions, garlic, something.


Definitely adjust to your own preference!
