This is my version because I like spicy. :-)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This broccoli and rice casserole is pure creamy, cheesy goodness. Each bite has bits of broccoli. Rotel tomatoes are what make this side dish special. They add a kick of flavor. The perfect casserole for any occasion. Spicy, fresh, and satisfying.
