Recipe originally posted May 27. 2003. This has been well liked by anyone I have made it for. Even picky eaters have liked it. Kids have loved it too. You can use ground beef, ground turkey, ground chicken, Italian sausage or pork sausage. The sour cream and mayonnaise add a little bit of tartness and flavor to it. It is really good served with corn. It is really good the next day as leftovers or made the night before and refrigerated (before baking). It can easily be reheated in a microwave oven. You can also make it without baking it. Just put the cheese over the rice-meat mixture and heat in the skillet until it is hot and bubbly and cheese has melted. Edited July 30, 2009 I am allergic to pepper so I don't add it to my recipes. Use salt and pepper according to personal taste.
