Green Rice Chile Bake

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 25 mins

A good Tex-Mex side dish, and the ingredients are easily found in our supermarkets. It is not too spicy, since most canned green chiles are mild.

  3. Top with cheddar cheese.
  4. Place in baking dish and bake at 375 F. for about 25 minutes, or until bubbly hot.

i don't care for "spanish rice" and this was such a welcome alternative. i will definately make this again. i usually serve refried beans w/mexican menu, but this is a great addition. it could have been a little more spicy for me, but that will be easy to remedy next time. great recipe.

My husband liked this although I didn't care for it much. My kids wouldn't eat it either and they usually skarf down anything with sour cream in it. I did use fat free sour cream and maybe that is the reason we didn't care for it much. Thanks, though.

I liked it for a creamy side to use instead of the usual spanish rice. We did kick ours up a bit by using red pepper which I thought made it. Thanks for another great freezable side dish. :)
