uncooked white rice
green bell pepper, chopped
red bell pepper, chopped
1 (7 ounce) can
chopped green chile peppers
1 (8.75 ounce) can
whole kernel corn, drained
1 (15.25 ounce) can
coarsely crushed corn chips
shredded Cheddar cheese
Very tasty. since I don't like cottage cheese, I substituted the cottage cheese with shredded cheddar cheese. I also added half a packet of taco seasoning to the rice.
For the lovers of hot and spicy like me, I topped it with pickled jalpeno slices.
This is better as a dip because the corn chips get soggy. Next time I'll add more cheese, take out the corn chips, and add tortilla chips for dipping.
I didn't have all the ingredients so I had to do some substitutions, but it still turned out well. I didn't have any vegetarian chili so I used a can of black beans. I also left out the corn chips all together and just served some tortilla chips on the side. A good staple of a recipe that can be played with and still have good results. It's a keeper in our house.
This was pretty good. I made it as written except I thought 7 oz. of green chilies were too many for my taste, so I used one 3.5 oz can instead. I also used a bigger can of corn. I was a bit scared because it really doesn't look appetizing, but I was pleasantly surprised. I ate it as a casserole, but I can see it would be good used as a filling for tortillas or with tortilla chips as a dip for a party. Very versatile.
yummy basic recipe to use leftover rice and cans in your cupboard...I only had chilli oil and 2 cans of flavoured (hot) chilli beans and 1 can of tomato puree, so used these instead of garlic/salsa/chillies/veg chilli. Also used 3 green peppers, 1 red pepper and increased corn to make it more veggie-laden. Added an egg to bind it. And to make it healthier I crushed up Corn Thins instead of corn chips (if you've never had them search for them! they're popular here in New Zealand/Australia and are like rice cakes but thinner, tastier, more fiber, baked and made from corn, yum! you can find where they're sold in the USA/elsewhere http://www.cornthins.com/) served as a casserole w/ chopped tomatoes on side. will make this recipe again, very tasty!
This was easy, but had too much cumin and chili powder. I will make it again, but with less spice and more cheese.
This was great! I made it almost exactly as the recipe indicated-I am not a huge cottage cheese fan so used 1/2 cottage cheese and 1/2 cheddar cheese instead. I made this about a month ago and it made a HUGE amount of food so I froze half of it before topping with the cheese and chips. We just ate it last night and it freezes really well! I served it with with tortillas, sliced avocados, and sour cream and it was fantastic!
The bell peppers went bad before I could use them and the casserole was still very tasty without them in it. And next time I might add some chips to the bottom layer by suggestion of my husband.
