Creamy Rice and Tomato Casserole

* 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
* 1 (10 oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
* 1 (11 oz) can whole kernel corn, drained well (optional, use frozen corn)
* 1/2 C sour cream

6. Adjust the heat to low, cover the skillet and cook 18 minutes or until rice is tender.

8. Blend in the sour cream and half of the cheese.
9. Use a rubber spatula and mix from the bottom up to combine all the ingredients.
10. Blend the rice mixture into the corn mixture.
11. Coat a 3 qt. casserole dish with a non stick cooking spray.

13. Cover the top of the casserole with the remaining cheese.
14. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20 minutes or until heated through.


This is a kid-friendly dish that grownups seem to like as well. I'm not exactly sure why kids like it so much... it's probably the cheese! Cheese is always a sure thing in my house.

You can actually make this dish with any packaged rice product and it will turn out just fine. Check out any of the Zatarain brand boxed mixes, like red beans and rice, and you'll have a totally different casserole. It's a fun dish to experiment with because you really can't go wrong! Enjoy!
