Movin' to a New Ranch Potatoes

This week two of my friends (and fellow bloggers), Miss Burns & The Alberts moved in to new digs. I was able to help one of them, and it was a good thing I did because she (Miss Burns) fell under the weather in the midst of the move. Here's to speedy unpacking and recoveries to all of my friends in their new homes...

Cheese Ranch Potato Bake

1 bag Simply Potatoes (diced potatoes w/onions)
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
2 TBS butter, cubed
1/2 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
1/4 cup Ranch dressing

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease an 8x8 casserole dish.

Place the potatoes in the dish and season evenly with chili powder, salt, & pepper. Evenly distribute butter over the potatoes.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour, until potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and mix in Ranch dressing and cheese. Continue cooking 10 minutes, until cheese is melted.
