Another great meatless recipe from my friend Brenda. This was also brought to our family when I broke my leg last year and has become a favorite.
Cheesy Fiesta Pie
1 pkg hash brown potatoes
4 cups very hot water
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 egg slightly beaten
Cover potatoes with hot water. Let stand 15 minutes. Drain thoroughly and mix with melted butter and egg. Press potato mixture on bottom and sides of a ungreased pie plate.
Bake 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
2 cups shredded Colby-jack cheese
1 can diced green chilies
2 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup milk
Sprinkle cheese on potato crust. Mix the remaining ingredients and pour over cheese.
Bake 35 minutes at 375 degrees.
Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
Top each slice with sour cream and shredded lettuce.
