I wanted a recipe that didn't use Minute Rice as I am not a fan. I also wanted it to use Velveeta instead of cheese whiz. I found this recipe on and loved that it also had celery and onion for a full rounded flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup butter
  • 12 cup celery, chopped
  • 12 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 8 ounces Velveeta cheese, cut into small chunks (or cheddar cheese, shredded)
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup (or cream of chicken)
  • 1 (10 ounce) package broccoli, chopped (I prefer fresh)


  1. Saute celery and onion in the butter.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a casserole dish.
  3. Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
  4. Stir before serving to spread velveeta throughout.
