Creamy Cheese Rice Recipe

THE best part about this recipe is that it's great both hot or cold. It's a dish I make often since cheese and rice are staples in my pantry and because it travels well, I like to take it to a picnic or a barbecue.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cubed process cheese (Velveeta)
