  • 15 oz Crema Mexicana made with Real California Milk
  • 6 oz Queso Fresco made with Real California Milk
  • 1 small can diced mild chiles
  • 1/2 medium sized yellow onion - diced
  • 2 - 2 1/2 lbs russet potatoes sliced thin - I used a mandoline - I left the skins on you can peel them though if you prefer
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spray a 9x13 pan or casserole dish with cooking spray.
  • Place half of the potatoes in the greased pan.
  • Cover them with half of the green chiles and onions and half of the crema mexicana.
  • Place the remaining potatoes in the pan.
  • Top with the rest of the onions and green chiles and then pour on the remaining sauce.
  • Cover the pan and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, uncover and sprinkle queso fresco over the top
  • Bake uncovered for an additional 15-20 minutes or until the top of the potatoes are lightly browned, the cheese is melted and the potatoes are tender.
  • Serve warm.
  • Enjoy!


You can broil the dish for 1 minute or so at the end to get the cheese extra brown if you would like.
