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!
