Hot, hot, hot!
I was in bed all weekend with the crud that's going around, and a friend brought me two things: A wonderful drink concoction and a rice dish to die for.
The drink had tomato juice, some vodka and horseradish in it, along with some other stuff. Apparently it's a secret, and he won't tell me the rest. This recipe seems to come close.
The rice dish was phenominal. After all, not only did it taste wonderful, but it helped clear out my sinuses. Not usually a prerequisite for my food, but in this case... And I DID get the recipe for this one.
Tex-Mex Rice Bake
4 cups cooked brown rice
1 1/2 cups shredded jalapeno cheddar cheese
1 4-oz. can chopped green chiles
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sliced scallions
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. white pepper
Heat over to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine rice, 1 cup cheese, chiles, sour cream, scallions, salt and pepper; stir until blended. Coat an 8x8-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spoon rice mixture into dish; top with remaining cheese. Cover with nonstick foil and bake 15 minutes; remove foil and bake 15 more minutes or until bubbly.
Yum! Goes perfectly with a tomato juice/vodka/horseradish drink!
