  • Yield: 8


  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 lb. shredded potatoes, thawed
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 15 oz. Nacho Cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9X13 casserole dish with nonstick spray. Pour in the shredded potatoes and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, on medium heat, add the olive oil and allow it to heat up. Cook the shallots until soft, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the nacho cheese and stir until smooth and creamy. Add the Pace® Picante Medium Salsa and stir.
