Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch slices
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded sharp white Cheddar cheese

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Process first 6 ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl, and stir in whipping cream.

  2. Lightly grease a 13- x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread one-fourth of potatoes in a single layer in prepared dish; top with one-fourth of cream mixture. Repeat layers three more times with remaining potatoes and cream mixture.
