Recipe Swap Tuesday: Cheesy Rice Bake

I'm sold on any recipe that has brown rice, chicken, and cheese. So, when I found this recipe on Pinterest I immediately pinned it with the intentions of actually making it soon. And I did, plus it was easy to throw together after a busy day at work and super yummy. I of course tweaked it a bit to our liking, as I prefer it without the salsa and less rice.

This dish is now on regular rotation for dinner, and we always enjoy it.


2 cups of brown rice
Diced grilled chicken (I used about a handful)
1 can of low sodium black beans
1 can of no salt added corn
1 7oz. can of diced green chiles
1 cup of fat free sour cream
1 cup of reduced fat cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cook rice according to directions on box
Combine all other ingredients in a large bowl, mix well
Once rice is cooked, add to the mixture
Spray an oven safe dish with non-stick cooking spray
Transfer mixture to oven safe dish and sprinkle top with some more cheese
Place in oven and cook for about 30 minutes at 350 until it bubbles

Ready for the oven
