Tasty and easy. Instead of instant rice I used cooked rice I had on hand. I added the other ingrediants and nuked it all in the microwave until hot. I love cheesy rice dishes - this one is good and easy.

This was very easy and quick to make. It reminded me of twice-baked potatoes without the fuss! I'm considering adding bacon next go-around. Thanks for a quick side-dish!

I used uncle ben instant rice. I omitted the salt and pepper and butter. I used maybe 1/2 cup of part skim cheddar cheese. And I used fat free sour cream. I liked this recipe. It's great with the green onions. Thanks Lorac :)
