Fiesta Rice

This was a yummy side dish that tasted like what we imagined Mexican macaroni and cheese would taste like.  It was very creamy and good, and I love that it cooked in the oven instead of on the stovetop.

The soup is the same I used in these Sausage and Cheese Muffins, which you really need to try, if you haven't.

The recipe calls for 3/4 cup rice, but I think you could use 1 cup or even 1 1/4 cup, and it would still be fine.  Also, make sure you cover it with foil so it cooks in the right amount of time.  You'll need to stir the rice before serving it, so don't be surprised when you see it looking still liquidy on top of the baking dish.

Thanks again to Plain Chicken for her recipe!
