Rich and satisfying, this easy side from Cathlene Willis of Rigby, Idaho is sheer comfort. "On occasion, I top it with canned onions or crumbled potato chips before baking," she notes.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 5, 2014

This is probably the best rice dish I've ever made. My husband is picky when it comes to rice dishes, and he just loved this. I doubled the recipe, and we still ate all of it in one night! Just the two of us! Served it with TOH's Honey and Spice Baked Chicken, and the flavors together were absolutely incredible! This is a meal perfect for impressing guests, and so very simple!

This is such a yummy recipe!!! We don't like chili's, so I used a green pepper and added baked chicken. Next time, I'll chop up some other veggies and hide them so the kids won't know. The taste is so good, they won't catch on to the veggies!

Excellent! Equally delicious with regular long grain rice, and most any flavor shredded cheese.
