Today is a great day, filled with spicy and sweet treats! Not only did I create a spicy Texas Hash Brown Casserole, I also have a wonderful sweet giveaway!
The 15-piece Signature Macaron Collection (entry at the bottom of page) by Sucre!
Now, back to the spicy part of the day! I decided I wanted this dish to have a lot of heat. That’s why I included Hatch chiles and fresh jalapenos. You can seed the jalapenos to remove some of the spice if desired.
I allowed the casserole to rest for about 10 minutes before digging in!
Spicy, creamy, cheesy…now all we need is some Sweet Sucre Macarons for dessert!
