How to Make Cool Ranch Potato Casserole

This potato casserole is super easy to make. Start with some frozen shredded hash browns. You can use them frozen or thawed. Combine the hash browns with sour cream, cream of chicken soup, taco seasoning, ranch seasoning, Rotel tomatoes, and cheese. Spread the potatoes into a baking dish and pop them in the oven.

You can make this potato casserole ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze for later. I like to divide the potatoes between a few 8×8-inch foil pans. I cook one and freeze the others for a quick side later. To bake after freezing, let the potatoes thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then bake as directed below.

  1. I just made this tonight and it was so good! It made a ton so I'm freezing half of it. I think this is going to be one of those dishes that's even better the second day!

    1. when making a similar dish i was out of sour cream so i subbed a bottle of ranch dressing for the sour cream and the dry ranch dsg mix. it turned out pretty tasty.

    2. I've never done it myself, so I can't vouch for how it might turn out, but I've seen people substitute sour cream with plain yogurt. Might be worth looking into.
