  2. When your dutch oven is hot, add the pork sausage and brown well. Once browned, spoon out into a bowl and set aside.

  3. Leaving the grease from the sausage in your dutch oven, throw in your butter, potatoes onions and jalapeno and cook until the potatoes are done and starting to brown.

  4. Spread your potatoes evenly across the bottom of your dutch oven and toss the browned sausage on top. Don’t mix it up. You want the layers.

  6. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top of that.
