I'm sure this is very fatty with all the cheese, but is delicious - my boyfriend called it "the veggie and cheese crack", so he really liked it! I can see how this would work as an appetizer too with tortilla chips...
Excellent flavor--I sub'd a can of drained hominy for corn and used leftover spanish rice instead of plain rice. The hominy gave the dish added creaminess and the spanish rice zipped up the flavor. It was fabulous and served as an entree, not appetizer.
This was fantastic. I used fiesta corn and added a dash of cumin, used garlic pepper in place of black pepper, and after removing from the oven and cooling for a few minutes I sprinkled a little chopped cilantro on top. I didnt think it was substantial enough on its own so I served it in warm tortillas and it was great. I think it would make a great stand-alone casserole by swapping the rice for rotini. My husband raved - thanks!
I took this to a dinner party and most guests ate 2 or 3 servings! The only thing I did different was use a 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes because that's what I had on hand. I will definitely make this again!
