Green Rice (Cheesy Broccoli Rice)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

This recipe contains green chiles which is different from the other recipes posted. We make this every year for Thanksgiving and we fight over the left overs. We usually double the recipe. Feel free to use more or less broccoli to suit your tastes. You can increase the ratio of rice to broccoli if you have picky eaters. If you increase the amount of rice also increase the amount of Cheez Whiz.

Good recipe, easy to follow. I used brown rice also. Very rich and tasty, and my son like it also, even though he is a picky eater.
