Rice With Green Chiles

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by keen5

This may be easily halved or doubled and may be assembled early in the day, refrigerated and baked later. Allow more baking time if casserole is chilled.

This was good and gets four stars for ease. I had two different kinds of leftover rice, one made with lime and cilantro and the other a spanish type rice. I think with plain rice it might have been too bland, but it turned out well with the leftovers. It's definitely VERY rich---I used low-fat versions of the sour cream and cheese. Next time I'll toss in some chopped green onions and sliced olives--this really could take a lot of variations.
