Cheesy Chili Rice Hot Dish

The slumber party is well under way with Just Dance 4!! Whoop!
Fiesta taco night was a success! I have to share this great recipe that I’ve been making for years with you.

Cheesy Chili Rice Hot Dish
From “The Great Minnesota Hot Dish” by Theresa Millang 1999
Serves 4

1 5oz package salsa style rice mix (I used Rice-a-Roni Spanish rice)
1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican style cheese blend, divided
1 15 oz can chili beans in sauce, undrained
1 14 1/2 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 Tablespoon minced yellow onion
1/2 cup water

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Combine rice mix and 1/2 cup cheese in a lightly greased 1 1/2 quart baking dish. In a saucepan, combine beans, tomatoes, onions and water. Bring to a boil; pour mixture over rice mixture, and stir until well mixed. Cover and bake 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered until cheese melts.


Gotta go – it’s my turn!!
