Incredibly Creamy Poblano Rice Recipe: This Easy Mexican Rice Casserole Recipe Will Leave You Speechless

No words. That's an overused statement, for sure, but it works for this creamy Mexican rice recipe. What's creamier than creamy? That word might describe this recipe. Might. It's a fun way to spice up the Thanksgiving menu this year.

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup converted rice (I used Uncle Ben's)
  • 3 ears corn on the cob
  • 1 large poblano pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small bunch cilantro, chopped (or to taste)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 package (8 ounces) white cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Here's how to make it:

Cook the rice according to package directions. Set aside. Char the corn on a grill or in a cast iron skillet. Slice off the kernels. Set aside. 

Roast the poblanos, then peel, seed and chop.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add the half the onion, chopped poblano and corn. Cook about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook about 2 minutes more.

Combine the cooked veggies, sour cream, cilantro, remaining onion, rice, cheese and whipping cream. Season with black pepper, to taste. Pour into a  3-quart baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes.

Looks good I'm going to try it can you add anything to it or will it mess up the recipe any meat or poultry or fish that you know corresponds with the rice let me know if you have any tips thank you
Donna John
I make this recipe as is. I've never added chicken, but how could that be bad?? Not sure about fish. Rosseyes

It was delicious! I did mix it up a bit-I hate changing recipes for first time but I didn’t have white cheddar so I used smoked Gouda & didn’t have cilantro so added lime zest & juice for freshness. Threw in a little cumin to play off the Gouda. I didn’t have fresh corn so I used a bag of steamed and then cooked it alone in a super hot pan alone to char it. It turned out amazing
Donna John
So happy you enjoyed it!! It's one of my favorites. Love the idea of using smoked gouda! Sarahd
