Indulge in a deliciously spicy and cheesy casserole that combines tender rice, tangy chiles, and melty cheese for a comforting meal. Perfect for family dinners or potlucks, this Chile Rice Bake is sure to be a crowd-pleaser with its rich flavors and satisfying texture.



  1. Begin by heating your oven to a temperature of 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius).
  2. Take an 8×8 inch baking dish and mix together the rice, soup, chile peppers, and sour cream until well combined. Once mixed, evenly distribute a layer of Cheddar cheese over the top.
  3. Place the dish into the oven, now warmed to the set temperature, and allow it to bake for a duration of 25 minutes.


  • For a milder version, you can use mild green chiles. If you prefer a spicier casserole, opt for hot green chiles or add some diced jalapeños for extra heat.
