This Tex-Mex inspired casserole is creamy, colorful, and, most importantly, flavorful. Our Corn Rice Casserole is hearty enough to be eaten on its own or can be paired with a Southwestern-style chicken dish.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups uncooked long-grain rice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 (15-1/2-ounce) can cream-style corn
  • 2 (11-ounce) cans Mexican-style corn, drained
  • 1 (11-ounce) can diced tomato and green chilies, undrained
  • 1 (8-ounce) loaf mild Mexican pasteurized prepared cheese product, cubed

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. Cook rice according to package directions; set aside.
     
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter; add bell pepper and onion and saute 5 minutes, or until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients including rice. Spoon into baking dish.
     
  4. Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes, or until heated through.
     

Notes

Friends always call and ask for recipes they can prepare ahead and freeze. Well, this recipe works great for that! To freeze it, line the baking dish with aluminum foil; fill and freeze. Lift the frozen casserole from the dish, and wrap it tightly with foil; return to the freezer. When you're ready to cook it, remove the foil, and place frozen casserole back into the serving dish. Let it stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Then bake it as directed above, and get ready for rave reviews!

What can be used in place of the Mexican processed cheese product?

Hi there! You can substitute Campbell's brand Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup. Enjoy!

cooked groun beef with the peppers and onions. Great one dish meal!! served wih corn bread muffins. GONE!!

can you use crock pot instead of baking and if yes high or low and how long?

Hi there! - We have not tried this recipe in a slow cooker, but believe that it will work. We suggest trying to cook on low heat for about 6 hours or on high heat for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Let us know how it turns out!

this one sounds like a winner will try it for supper

Sounds like a winner for special occasions for home, church, etc.

Peanut Butter & Banana French Toast Bake

This recipe was inspired by Elvis, who had a love for all things peanut butter, bananas, and bacon! We may not be able to perform rock 'n' roll like our good friend, Terry Buchwald, but our Peanut Butter Banana French Toast Bake is our way of paying tribute to the King.
