This is a tasty dish perk up any “ho-hum” dinner. We especially like it with chicken enchiladas. I also prepare it for potlucks and family get-togethers. It’s a little different to bake rice, but it’s handy to not have to watch it on the stove. You can make the rice less spicy by choosing a more mild variety of the canned tomatoes with green chilies.
