The best part about this cheesy rice 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.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cubed process cheese (Velveeta)
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley, optional

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the water, rice and salt to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
  2. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese and parsley if desired. Cover and let stand for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Stir until blended.
