Recipe by Melissa_8201

This was invented out of desperation. I was making Yopper's Green Chile Stuffed Chicken Breasts (#29059) and needed a simple side dish. I thought a rice dish would be yummy and I opened my pantry and voulah....Creamy, Cheesy Mexican Rice!

This is good -- I had to substitute a few things to use what I had on hand; I didn't have green chilies or Rotel so I used a can of diced tomatoes and added a handful of frozen diced green/red sweet peppers, and some preshredded colby-jack and taco cheese blends that I had in the fridge. Otherwise I made pretty much as directed and my family liked it. Since it makes a large amount, I think it would be a good dish for a potluck. Thanks for sharing!
