Cheesy Corn & Rice Casserole

Diane Atherton


This was one of my mothers most requested dishes for the holidays. Originally named "Mexicorn Casserole". I changed the name because it was deceiving. The only thing Mexi about it, is the Mexicorn used in it. Excellent side for your holiday cooking.

It's quick, it's easy and it's always a big hit! Hope you enjoy!

NOTE: Double recipe if cooking for a crowd.
