Directions

  1. Bring rice and 2 cups water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Stir chili beans, tomato sauce, and 3/4 cup water through the cooked rice; bring to a simmer over medium heat. Pour rice mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Spread sour cream over the rice mixture. Sprinkle crushed corn chips over the sour cream layer; top with Mexican cheese blend.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until heated through and the cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.

Decrease water to 1C and cook rice with 1C salsa for added flavor. I also like to add browned ground beef or grilled chicken. Delicious!

Since I didn't have chili beans I used kidney beans that I had seasoned with Taco seasoning. I kept everything else the same. Both my husband and I enjoyed this variation to stove top rice and would fix it again.
