  • 2 cups of brown rice cooked
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes and green chiles drained (10 ounces)
  • 3 cups of chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 package of shredded Monterey Jack cheese 8 ounces, halved


  • If you do use canned chicken, make sure you drain the water out.
  • Then mix the cooked rice, tomatoes and green chiles, chicken and half of the cheese.
  • Pour into a greased 7×11 casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with the rest of the cheese and bake uncovered for 5 more minutes.
  • Now you can serve it as is, but I jazzed it up with lettuce and sour cream, and it was the perfect combo.
  • My hubby jazzed his up with his favorite green tabasco sauce. He also mentioned that this dish would be delicious served in tortillas, and I agree.
