Great combination. I too use shredded cheese instead of cubes. I served it with plum-glazed chicken. Thank you for sharing.
I made 1 1/2 times the recipe for our Sabbath fellowship. I added 1 tablespoon each seasoning salt & garlic powder, used 2 (7 oz.) cans green chilies & a blend of 3 different pepper jack cheeses. I added 3/4 cup chicken broth for warming in a crockpot. I think it would have gone over better if I had put shredded cheddar on the top. I brought most of the pot home. I thought it tasted good, however.
I've made this recipe twice now. It is so easy and so tasty. I, too, shredded the cheese for easier combining. Also, I roasted Pasilla peppers and cut them up instead of using canned chilis. Added a smokey flavor. Love this recipe.
The combination of these ingredients are fantastic! I have made this twice, both times as a side for guests when I make a taco bar. I shredded the Monterey Jack cheese the 2nd time, and it seemed to be a better mix. I LOVE this recipe!
This is soooo close to my mother's recipe that has been in the family for over 60 years! I LOVE IT! However, mom's called for 1/4 cup softened butter in the rice mixture.
With this recipe, I used shredded monterrey jack cheese instead. I layer 1/2 of the rice mixture, topped with 1/2 the cheese, another layer of the rice mixture, then the other 1/2 of the cheese on top. COMES OUT PERFECT!
BTW...this recipe goes GREAT with the Slow-Cooked Flank Steak recipe on this website..
