A few weeks ago, a good friend of mine made these amazing jalapeño poppers. I started thinking what else could I create with this great taste sensation. I immediately thought of my favorite potato casserole recipe and decided to turn the heat up on this recipe. I switched from using cheddar cheese to smoked gouda, diced the jalapeños and cooked them with red onions until the peppers were slightly charred and added them to the mixture. This gave the peppers the smoky taste that you would get when roasting the poppers. This re-creation of the my potato casserole recipe turned out terrific. To add more spice to this recipe, you can certainly add additional peppers or add a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce. This recipe is very easy to customize and you certainly can add your favorite add-ins.
