Ingredients

2 1/2 c
water
2 c
rice, short grain
2 c
sour cream, lite
1/2 lb
monterey jack cheese
7 oz
green chiles, diced (small can)
3 Tbsp
butter or margerine, (i use smart balance)
1/4 c
parmesan cheese (freshly grated)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium saucepan bring the water to a boil and add the rice. Simmer until the water is all absorbed. About 20-25 minutes. Allow this to cool.
2
While the rice is cooking, grease the bottom and the sides (lightly) of a 1 1/2quart casserole baking dish. I would say an 11 x 9 baking dish. Set aside.
3
After rice has cooled, mix together the cooked rice, salt and sour cream.
4
Spread 1/2 of this mixture evenly in the bottom of the greased casserole dish.
5
Evenly distribute the Shredded Jack Cheese and diced chilies across the rice.
6
Cover that layer evenly with the remaining rice mixture.
7
Dot the top with butter and sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese across the top. If you like, you may add some more Jack cheese for topping.
8
Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for approx. 30 minutes.
