I got this recipe years ago from a Kraft magazine ad. It is a family favorite and a great way to use up left over rice. Makes a great side dish to grilled meats. Prep time includes time to steam rice. Prep time using leftover rice is about 5 minutes

I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream because that's what I had. It was delicious and the rice was very tender

This was so gross. It was very bland and only tasted like sour cream. The cheese clumped horribly and the consistency was so viscous that it reminded me of mucus. This is not how you make cheesy rice.

Yummy!!!! We loved this! I didn't have cayenne but just sprinkled some Emeril's Essence. I also used some salt and pepper and topped it off with a little more grated cheese. Wow! Perfect pared with grilled porkchops and grilled brussel sprouts (Alton Brown's recipe). Turns hard leftover rice into a super quick side dish. Just what I was looking for!
