1 1/2 cups Riceland Extra Long Grain Rice, uncooked

3 cups shredded chicken

8 oz cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup sour cream

1 10 oz can green chile enchilada sauce

2 4 oz cans chopped green chiles, undrained

1 onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 tsp cumin

2 cups shredded cheese, divided (Cheddar or a Mexican Blend)

Salt and pepper to taste

2 green onions, thinly slice 


Prepare rice according to package directions.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine chicken, cream cheese, sour cream, enchilada sauce, green chiles, onion, garlic, cumin, 1 cup of shredded cheese, and rice in a large bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Evenly spread into your baking dish.
