“This is a delicious vegetarian side dish with any type of entree. Watch it disappear. Great pot luck dish, as it can be served right from the oven or just warm.”

I've made this recipe many times. It's one of my favorites! I add a can of Rotele Tomatoes with Chilis-it's the perfect addition. Yummy!

I have been making a variation of this dish for years. Don't use olives, but do mix in garlic powder and either chili poder or caun seasoning into sour cream. I think it turns out better if you mix the rice into the sour cream, with about half the cheese, before turning it into the casserole dish. Then top with the remainder of the cheese. Great way to use up leftover rice or a terrific pot luck dish when doubled.

Excellant with some cumin and a little chili pwd with the rotel and I use black and green olives. adds a little zap to it. I agree with add sour cream to rice prior to baking and use a little more to keep moist and top with colby longhorn cheese. almost spanish rice with tomatoe juice. I brown the rice as well before cooking. much more flavor and a little nut flavor adds to it.
