This is a sweet spicy little twist on funeral potatoes!
Don't know what funeral potatoes are???
They are the LDS/Mormon dish traditionally funerals anything.

Nobody claims these are healthy. They just taste amazing.

1 large can (6oz?) of fire roasted diced green chiles

2 Tbsp of garlic powder
1 Tbsp of fresh ground black pepper.

  • Spray bottom of 9x13 pan with Pam or cooking spray. 
  • Dump in tots and spread evenly.
  • Heat up cheese in microwave a bit then pour or spoon over tots.
  • If using the cream of ....soup, spoon it over tots & cheese.
  • Drain Rotel of 1/2 the liquid (not all).
  • Add Rotel & Diced Green Chilis.
  • Sprinkle liberally with garlic powder & fresh black powder.
  • Mix well.
  • Bake @350 until bubbly in the middle...about 45 minutes.
