I like this side-dish recipe for it's simplicity. After you've made it once, it's easy to put it together from memory.
"Rice, Green Chili, Jack Cheese, Sour Cream Heaven"
preheat oven to 375
1 4oz can green chilies - chopped
1-2 cups shredded Monterey jack or cheddar cheese
2 cups sour cream
3 cups cooked rice
1 tsp. salt
Combine chilies, sour cream, salt and rice, until blended together. Spread evenly in a medium sized casserole dish. Distribute shredded cheese evenly over top. Cover and bake 20 minutes in a 375 degree oven. Uncover and bake for 10 additional minutes.
Add-in or garnish ideas: a can of rinsed and drained kidney beans, sliced olives, green onions, diced tomatoes
