(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and if you're cooking something on the grill for Father's Day Weekend, this spicy green chile rice casserole made in the slow cooker might be just the side dish you're looking for!)

I know some of you never think about using the slow cooker for a side dish, but once you try it you'll realize how convenient it is to have a side dish cooking unattended while you focus on the main part of the meal.  This Spicy Slow Cooker Rice Casserole with Green Chiles, Green Onions, and Cheese is one of my personal favorite slow cooker side dishes, and my sister Val tried out the recipe and reported it was a hit with her family as well.  I highly recommend cooking extra rice just so you have some leftover rice to try this recipe!

Ingredients for this recipe:
  • Uncooked long-grain white rice
  • thinly sliced scallions
  • reduced-fat sour cream
  • canned diced green chiles
  • Green Tabasco sauce
  • reduced fat Mozzarella cheese
  • finely grated Parmesan cheese

  1. When I first bought a rice cooker, many people told me not to bother trying to cook rice in it. I can't imagine why not, especially with great recipes like this one.
