This was easy and delicious. I used Co-jack cheese instead of Monterey jack simply because it was what I had on hand. High recommend this as a side dish to Pepper Jack Stuffed Chicken.
I've made this a couple times now, per others' suggestions I have layered the rice mixture with the cheese x2 in the casserole dish, ending with the cheese topping. It's a nice alternative to plain rice as a side dish, especially if you are serving a main that doesn't have a sauce to pour over rice. The chili flavour is very mild, not spicy at all. I generally have all of these ingredients on hand, so I find this dish very convenient to make as well... Light sour cream can be used with no real difference to the flavour.
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.
