Green Chile and Rice Casserole

Rating: 4.5 stars 113
Green chile rice, just in time for Christmas! I have NEVER served this in 25 years without raves or requests for the recipe. Note: the sour cream and cheese can be low-fat if you wish.

Herbed Rice and Spicy Black Bean Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 76
Delicious fresh herbs and a blend of peppers make this a fresh, light, and healthy dish that can be a side or a main course. My family loves this on warm summer nights.

Basic Microwave Risotto

Rating: 4.5 stars 269
Microwave Risotto is great because of its forgiving nature; if you forget it for a half hour, nothing is lost. Also, it is a wonderful clean-out-the-fridge, use-your-imagination, I-just-bounced-five-checks recipe. It reheats well too. You can use margarine or olive oil in place of the butter, and you can use apple juice or white grape juice in place of the wine.

Herbed Lentils and Rice

Rating: 4.5 stars 92
Looking for dishes that are both healthy and yummy, Judy Manbeck latched on to lentils, 'I'm trying to incorporate more legumes and whole grains into our diet, so this blend of lentils and rice is perfect,' she writes from Chanute, Kansas.

Fennel Risotto

Rating: 4.5 stars 36
Don't let the strong taste of fennel scare you: it fades down after cooking. This is a rich and creamy risotto, just like it ought to be! You can use chicken stock in place of the vegetable stock, as well as olive oil for the butter.

Indonesian Spiced Rice

Rating: 4.5 stars 44
This colorful, spicy rice side dish will pair perfectly with lamb kabobs.

Southwestern Rice

Rating: 4.5 stars 103
'I created this zippy side dish after eating something similar at a restaurant. It complements any Tex-Mex meal wonderfully,' writes Michelle Dennis of Clarks Hill, Indiana. 'Sometimes I add cubes of grilled chicken breast to the rice to make it a meal in itself.'
