This also works well with chicken breast --- instant white rice may be substituted for the brown if desired, for extra heat add in another jalapeno pepper or cayenne pepper :)

This is one of those favorites that you use so often, you never remember to review! We love this casserole. I will often make a big dish and take it for lunch throughout the week. I eat it as a dip for chips at lunch. Yum Yum Yum! I will also add seasonal vegetables sometimes.
