I had a slew of left over rice today.... and I was just so sick of making fried rice... and this recipe put the cooked rice to excellent use! I used low fat sour cream, brown rice, and part skim cheese to make this a bit more healthy. Also I added in some left over roasted garlic since everything tastes good with garlic lol!! Great recipe to use up cooked rice or not!

I liked this a lot! I think the creme fraiche really prevents the rice from drying up (a common problem with rice casseroles). I used cheddar for this, and really enjoyed the results. Thanks for posting!

This was great! So easy and cheesy with a bit of creaminess. I didn't add green chilis because I wanted my two and four-year-olds to eat it, so we just sprinkled jalapeno on top of our separate portions. We also added cheese to the top while baking and left it uncovered. Easy dish that even my finicky kids will eat - thanks!
