    I got this dish from my great aunt, was the first one i learned to cook by heart, lol


    1 cup uncooked rice
    1lb cheddar sharp or mild shredded
    1lb montery jack shredded
    1 stick butter softened
    8 oz sour cream
    6-8oz Ortega chilies ( diced Anaheim Chilies)

    preheat over to 375
    Cook rice
    In a separate bowl mix the 2 cheeses and remove about 1/4 of the cheese to be placed on top at end of cooking.
    Mix the rice , sour cream, chilies , butter , and cheese then put into a 9" by 13" baking dish
    Bake for 20-25 minutes then sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake for another 5 minutes.
    Let it set for a few minutes before serving as it will be extremely hot and a bit sticky.




    optional:
    If you like things spicier swap the chilies with jalapenos


    This makes a good sized portion and i tend to make it a couple times a month just for myself lol.
