I’ve got a thing for scalloped potatoes.

Creamy, cheesy, potato-y goodness.

I’ve pretty much got a thing for anything creamy, cheesy and potato-y.

I love how easy this dish is to make ahead! You can getit  ready and fully cooked, then stick it in the fridge for a day or even two, and just pop it in the oven when you need it.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about adding different flavours to scalloped potatoes. It’s such an easy dish to add some personality to!

Since I made this Creamy Nacho Potato Soup a while back, I figured it’d be pretty simple to add those same flavours to these scalloped potatoes.

I just love the flavour in these potatoes! It’s definitely not your usual scalloped potatoes, but the spices aren’t so overwhelming that it you couldn’t pair it with a variety of things. It has a nice, subtle nacho spice to it — just enough to mix things up a bit.
