    A cheesy, good Mexican-influenced rice dish. I've served this often with great success. Originally from a local Methodist church cookbook from 20 plus years ago.

      WONDERFUL! We loved the combination of ingredients in this rice casserole. Creamy, cheesing and the onions and green chilies gave it just the right amount of zip. This is a winner, Leslie in Texas.
