This isn't fancy or very photogenic, but boy is it delicious! I made a half recipe with a whole can of chilies. I made the rice the night before and it measured out 1 1/2 cups, but after chilling it must have shrunk because as I scooped out 1/2 cups to make the 3 layers there was only enough to make 2 layers. It didn't matter, I just added the goop on top of the rice and topped with cheese. Super easy, super tasty! Made for Please Review My Tag.

This was great! I hate to tell you, but I butchered the heck out of the recipe. Instead of chiles I used Rotel tomatoes w/ chiles. Then, after that, I used mexican shredded cheese blend for the cheese. I was just trying to use items up that I had on hand. I will definately be making this again- the way it's posted.

Good Heavens lady we NEEEEEEED you back at the library...I miss you very much, and EVERYONE misses this dish. This is probably the most terrible thing you can do to your waist, and simultaneously the MOST AWESOME rapture your tongue can handle without going numb! Isn't that always the way. Engrossed you sooo ROCK!!!

Wow! This was fantastic! I absolutely love chilis rellanos and the taste was almost identical. I don't dare make this very often, tho', as it is extemely rich. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe

Ok, first let me say this was WONDERFUL! I absolutely loved the flavor. I did do some things you said not to though, sorry! I used low fat sour cream, but I never eat regular sour cream, so I am used to the taste/texture. So for people who regularly use low fat sour cream, I don't think it will be a problem. I am sure it would be better with the full fat sour cream (isn't everything?) I don't eat it though. I did use regular cheese. I LOVE green chiles so I used about 2 and a half times the amount called for. I also had to mix it all together because I cut the recipe down to only 3 servings and did not have a baking dish small enough to allow me to layer it correctly. So I pretty much did everything you said not to, and I still loved it. Will definitely try the layering next time I make a full batch. I will also take this to my next potluck using full fat sour cream : ) Thanks for this, I will certainly make this often.

This rice is so tasty. We recently had a large gathering at our house and had several guests asked for the recipe. I did double the recipe and cooked it in the crockpot as suggested. I used the hot ortega chilis as we like a spice and was not disappointed. Thanks so much for a great quick sidedish

This was terrific, i used low fat sour cream as well. It scaled down to 2 portions very well too.

Very yummy and easy. I added more chilis and topped it with even more chilis after it cooked.

This is a very comforting dish! I liked your photo, so I baked part of our rice in blanched peppers. It was so good! I did sub. light sour cream; after baking it kind of looked curdled. But it tasted great! Thanks for the recipe.
