Pot Luck Recipes
From Anne Thompson--This is a Guild meeting favorite!
Rice and Sour Cream Casserole
Combine in a Casserole Dish:
3/4 lb (3 cups) Monterey Jack Cheese, grated
3 cups salted sour cream
2 large cans peeled, chopped green chilies
3 cups cooked rice
Salt and pepper to taste
Bake in 350 degree oven for about 1.2 hour--until warm. In the last few minutes of baking spread 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese on top and allow to melt before removing casserole from the oven. Instead of putting this in the oven Ann puts it in a crock pot set on low when taking it to a pot luck. It is ready when the rice is warm and the cheese on top has melted.
