Spanish 7 Layer Casserole - a Pantry Recipe

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Nyteglori

I am publishing a series of recipes that use items from your pantry. These recipes are good for emergency survival, camping, job loss and other situations where surviving off staples may be needed. Most of these are also good as a quick dinner when you dont feel like cooking. Since these recipes require canned or packaged goods they may not be as good as if you use fresh - but feel free to substitute fresh for packaged.

I would like to try this, but need to know if the 1 C of rice is cooked or uncooked. I'm thinking uncooked due to the time in the oven...but I've been wrong before (not that I let my husband know that...) Please advise. Thanks!
