Chili-Cheese Bake

When a recipe calls for cooked rice, you can conveniently prepare it earlier in the day or even the day before and then refrigerate until ready to use.

Plus, you'll find it's easier to mix well-chilled cooked rice with other ingredients.

This recipe is another family favorite that the kids will love. Easy to assemble and will give you a little taste of the Cajun cooking with the green chilies and kidney beans.

Go easy on the Creole seasoning if you don't want it to be too spicy.
