Scalloped Potatoes with Chipotle Chile and Smoked Cheddar Cheese
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a lighter, quicker scalloped potato recipe for weeknight dinners. Although we used traditional russet potatoes to form tight, cohesive layers, we used a 50:50 ratio of canned chicken broth and heavy cream to offset the heaviness of the dish. We parboiled the sliced potatoes in the chicken broth–heavy cream mixture on top of the stove, then poured the whole mixture into a casserole dish and finished it in the oven.
