The concept is a good one - but WAY too much sour cream. I used way less didn't measure just a "glob" - and used 1 can green chiles and 1 can japs cuz we like it SPICY. Used less cheese because.. well cheese is expensive. Really good concept with changes a good recipe.
This is an AWSOME recipe Absolutely delicious. I tried it about a year ago and ever seince I make it at least once a month. I try different kinds of cheese in it and lately I've been adding chicken and making it a main course. If it is too strong for you with monerey jack substitute it for one of your favorite cheeses. I like it with cheddar.
I made this a little differently so it would be the main dish. I cooked 2 cups rice in 4 cups chicken broth with green onion pepper and garlic then mixed in a large can of chili beans. Combined the sour cream with the green chiles and a packet of taco seasoning then layered the components like the recipe said and baked like the recipe said. This made 8 large servings and leftovers were great in flour tortillas with lettuce tomatoes and salsa. Either in tortillas or plain this turned out really well (my fiance loved it) and I'll make it again. Also KKH3 must have done something wrong with their rice. There's no reason for rice to cook differently in broth than water and the liquid to rice ratio described in the recipe should be just fine.
Sometimes listening to other's reviews helps sometimes not. I halved the sour cream and felt it wasn't enough (see photo - it's a bit dry without the correct amount). I realized halfway through making this that I didn't have canned chiles so I added other hot spices to make up for it. The way I made this it was about a 3. I think if I had the correct ingredients and made it according to the recipe it would have been a 4. Still it's mainly just rice and sour cream but it's got a lot of potential. You could easily add chicken or hamburg tomatoes etc. to this and make it what you want it to be. Think of it as an enchilada with rice instead of a tortilla and just have fun with it. I will make this again but will follow the recipe and maybe add a few other things in for fun.
I had to make major changes to this recipe. There was WAY too much cheese and way too little rice (and I love cheese). I ended up making a cup of rice and I reduced the cheese to half. The rice did not cook well with the broth (there was too little broth) and I ended up having to add water to it. It tasted well except for the crunchy rice that didn't get cooked enough.
