Southwestern Layered Rice is a casserole that's as crunchy as it is creamy. Try out this dish on your family. They're sure to love it!

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 scallions (green onions), chopped
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits, chopped (see Option)
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 3 cups cooked rice, divided

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, sugar, salt, and pepper. In a large bowl, combine scallions, bacon bits, and cheese.
     
  3. Place one-third of the rice in prepared casserole dish. Layer one-third of the sour cream mixture over rice then one-third of the cheese mixture. Repeat the layers two more times, ending with a layer of cheese mixture.
     
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until bubbly and brown around the edges.

 

Option

You may substitute crispy, crumbled cooked bacon for the bacon bits, if you prefer.

Do you cook the rice first?

Hi there! Yes, the ingredient list calls for cooked rice. :) Enjoy!

What a great way to add flavor to basic white rice!

Made it, fantastic! Only need one cup sour cream, any cheeses will do. I used brown rice. I guess you could add meat, but I use it as a side dish. Making it tonight with grilled steak at hubby's request tonite with grilled steak

I would add some hamberger and sauage and one big onion with the rice and then put it in layers

Just a thought...this recipe could be varied by using yellow rice instead of or alternately with white rice.

I can see this with taco meat, chicken or leftover ham. Haven't tried it yet, so I can't honestly rate it. I think it would be a winner with what ever meat you decided to add. Thanks for the possibilities from this great base recipe.
