This will definitely be one of your family's new favorite side dishes!In our pre-children days (which was also pre-Pinterest!), I used to love and sit down and find new recipes to make. I would spend hours searching recipe food boards for new ideas and then print them out and put them all in a folder. The days my food magazines arrived were like Christmas! I would pour through them, looking for something new to make! I found the idea for this Cheesy Green Chile Rice on a recipe board at some point, and I wish I could find the original source now, but it was so many years ago. I have changed and adapted the recipe over the years and think I have come up with the perfect mix of ingredients.

Green chiles add so much flavor to this recipe and it is one of my favorite ingredients to cook with. They are so tangy and delicious! You can use any type of rice you’d like here. I love to use the boil in bag ones to save time or you could cook long grain rice from scratch, its up to you!
