Tabitha's Green Chile Rice Casserole Recipe: This Creamy Rice Casserole Recipe Is Loaded With Texas Attitude

My friend Tabitha lives in Texas, where spice is always nice. She shared this creamy rice casserole, loaded with green chiles and cheese, that's a family favorite for dinner and even special occasions. It's a vegetarian dinner casserole with attitude.

"My daughter, who is turning 25 today, has again requested it with her steak dinner," Tabitha said, smiling. "She wanted the leftovers, so I put it in a tiny container ... it’s only about one serving left!"

Hope your family loves this easy and delicious casserole recipe as much as Tabitha's does.
