Recipe: Cheesy Cilantro Rice2 C uncooked rice
4 C water
1 C fresh cilantro, minced
1C sour cream
4 oz Monterrey jack cheese, cut into ¼-inch chunks
1 small can diced green chilis
½ t salt
Put the rice, water, and cilantro in a heavy-bottomed pan and heat to boiling. For sticky rice, stir a couple of times as it’s heating to release the starches. Once the rice boils, cover the pan and lower the heat. Simmer over low heat for 20-25 minutes, until the rice is done. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
Mix the cooked rice and remaining ingredients and put in a casserole dish. Cover and bake at 325 for 30 minutes, until heated through.
