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 lowfat if you wish.

One of my favorite potluck dishes for 30 years! I make a pot (3 cups) of plain white rice, and then mix all together. I usually stir in a little garlic and onion powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Read More

Oh we all hated this one. Not sure what happened. I didn't find a 6 oz. rice package so I bought a box and followed the directions for 8 servings. Could have been too much rice. The recipe also calls for 16 oz of cheese. One 8 oz package of shredded cheese is 2 cups. Does the recipe really want 4 cups? I only used 2. It was really really dry. Sorry. Read More

I'm so glad I came across this recipe. I made it last night with Ronaldo's Beef Carnitas. You can have it as a side or put it right in the tortilla with the meat. I used a package of Uncle Bens Wild Rice. Make sure you cook it with the seasoning packet. I reduced the amount of sour cream to 1/2 cup, the cheese to 1 cup and didn't drain the green chiles. I didn't bother layering, just mixed it all up in a bowl and poured into my pan. Yummy. I think you could really soup this up by adding sliced olives, mushrooms, sauteed onions, etc. You could even add some diced chicken and make it a meal. Very versatile. Read More

I LOVE this recipe--so easy! Everyone begs for the recipe. I found I can use half the cheese and it's still great. Read More

Great side dish. A nice variation to plain wild rice. I made it for a dinner party of 7 so I doubled the amount of rice. I used 2 packages of Uncle Ben's Wild Rice. I reduced the amount of sour cream and cheddar cheese. Even though I doubled the recipe I only used 1 cup of light sour cream and 2 cups of cheddar cheese. I used 2 cans of green chilies and used the juice. I didn't drain them as the recipe suggested. This was a very easy recipe. I made the rice earlier in the day and then just before the dinner party I layered all of the ingredients and baked the dish. It turned out great. Read More

This is a great recipe. Rice can be a boring side but this is so easy and so good. So much easier than making a risotto. I used 8 oz. Monterey Jack and 8 oz. cheddar and I was short about 2 tablespoons sour cream so I threw in some ranch dip (that I had made with sour cream) to make up the difference. Will definitely make again. I may throw in some shredded cooked chicken or a layer of prepared taco meat. Love it! Additional note: I browned 8 oz. ground beef and used 1/2 a packet of taco seasoning mix to make taco meat and added 1/2 on top of the rice and then the other half on top of the 2nd layer of rice. Awesome - my family loved it! Read More

We all liked this one. Only used about 1/2 the amount of cheese called for and didn't drain the chiles. Mixed together the prepared rice sour cream and green chiles poured it in the baking dish and topped with shredded cheese. Then baked it until hot and bubbly. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I loved this recipe! My husband loved it and he doesn't even like sour cream. Next time I think I'll add chopped chicken to make it more like a meal. Read More
