This is an absolutely fantastic rice dish!!! We loved it! I halved the recipe with no trouble and I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream. Be warned - the chilies give a REAL kick to this rice - so be sure to be ready for that!. Quick to make and great to use with left over rice. I will for sure be making this again. Thanks for sharing!

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #54* A VERY tasty side ! This is likely more effort than I put into most rice dishes, but well worth the time and ingredients. Only change I made was to use 1 can of chilies and subbed Bistro taco cheese mix for cheddar. DH and I ate the WHOLE thing in 2 nights, heated up nicely in the microwave. Thanks for posting, Chef Buggsy.
