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.
