Loaded potato casserole

If you ask Phee on any given night what she wants for dinner, her answer is some combination of black beans, potatoes, corn, and applesauce. Not bad choices at all. Potatoes are a big favorite in our house, especially baked potatoes loaded up with lots of goodies. Phee just wants cheese and butter, but I want everything- bacon, sour cream, cheese, chives. So delicious!

I've seen several incarnations of a chicken and baked potato dish on Pinterest, but find the addition of chicken unappealing for some reason. Cooked separately, it sounds delicious. All together? Not so much.

So I decided to try making a loaded potato casserole instead and completely skip the chicken. The addition of green pepper adds a sweet twist. This is a fantastic side dish, with lots of leftovers for lunches. We had it as the main dish with salad and loved it. There weren't as many leftovers, but that just means I have to make it again soon!

  4. Cover with foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

What do you put on top of your baked potatoes? And how do you make them? I prefer oven baked, but never have time so I just microwave them.
