Here’s an idea using your slow cooker to turn leftover rice into Spicy Slow Cooker Rice Casserole with Green Chiles, Green Onions, and Cheese. Your family will love it!
It’s Memorial Day Weekend and I don’t know how many people will be staying home to cook, so I’m spotlighting this past recipe that’s been one of my favorites. And if you’re cooking something on the grill for Memorial Day, this Slow Cooker Rice Casserole with Green Chiles made in the slow cooker might be just the side dish you’re looking for!
You may 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!
I used the new Crock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker for this recipe, but you can use most any slow cooker, it just won’t look quite as much like a casserole!
