This is it!!! Members of my family cooked this for years, and after they passed on, we couldn't find it anywhere. Thanks so very much for posting - this will be on the table at my house this year!

I hate to do this but I followed the directions to the letter and this did not work at all. Cheez Whiz is very expensive so I felt I must speak up for those who plan on making this in the future. Everything appeared to be normal until I pulled it out of the oven after 30 minutes and tried to spoon it out. There is not enough liquid to cook the rice. The rice sunk to the bottom and was still hard as a rock. I have read the recipe over and over thinking that I surely missed a step but I did not. The only thing I can think of is that maybe you are supposed to use Minute Rice which cooks faster and doesn't require near the liquid. If you are planning on using long grain rice I highly recommend that you precook it before it goes into the oven with the other ingredients.

Loved this recipe. I don't like celery so I used green onion in place of it. I also used yellow rice and added a dash of hotsauce before putting in the oven. This is the only change I made. Delicious!!
