3/4 cup water
1 cup mashed potato flakes
1 tbsp chopped green chiles, optional
1 1/2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Additional shredded Cheddar cheese for topping
Spray an 8-inch pie plate or a small casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Stir in the dip and mix well. Remove from the heat and add the potato flakes and the green chiles, if using. Mix together well.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared pie plate. Top with the melted butter and the 1/4 cup of cheese. Broil 4 to 6-inches from the heat for less than 5 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown. Remove from broiler and sprinkle with additional cheese.
Cut into 4 wedges for serving.
