Expert Tips

Meat lovers can stir in their favorite cooked meat with the rice mixture in step 3. Cooked ground beef, diced pepperoni, crumbled cooked bacon or cooked sausage all work well. Be sure to use a 3-quart casserole, though. This recipe is also perfect served as a side dish with grilled chicken or steak or tacos. It will serve 8 to 10 as a side dish.

Serve this meatless casserole with your favorite fixin’s, such as sour cream and chopped avocado or guacamole.
