Mexican Rice Casserole

A good recipe for using up some leftover rice and turkey (or chicken).

  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • 4 ounces green chili peppers, chopped
  • 2 cups turkey or chicken, cooked, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat Oven to 350F. Prepare rice or use leftover rice. If the rice has salt in it already, omit the salt from the recipe.
