How to Make Rice Casserole


  • 1In 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.
  • 2While 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.
  • 3After rice has cooled, mix together the cooked rice, salt and sour cream.
  • 4Spread 1/2 of this mixture evenly in the bottom of the greased casserole dish.
  • 5Evenly distribute the Shredded Jack Cheese and diced chilies across the rice.
  • 6Cover that layer evenly with the remaining rice mixture.
  • 7Dot 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.
  • 8Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for approx. 30 minutes.
