24 days till Christmas...
Can you believe it? We love this time of year...
Sister's birthday is Monday...and we've been celebrating all weekend...we went to see Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" last night at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre...it was soooo good, and really amped my Christmas Spirit...Would so love a white Christmas!!!
I've decided it's time to dive into some of those comfort food recipes that I've been saving for Winter...
Tonight it's... Jalapeno, Cilantro, Chicken & Rice Casserole-- no "cream of..." anything!
The recipe is from Culinary.Net.
2 cups cooked rice
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 1/2 cups cooked, chopped chicken breast meat
1 can (12 fluid ounces) Nestlé Carnation Evaporated Milk
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 tablespoon diced jalapeños
PREHEAT oven to 350–F. Lightly grease 2-quart casserole. COMBINE rice, cheese, chicken, evaporated milk, onion, eggs, cilantro, butter and jalapeños in prepared casserole; stir well. BAKE 45 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Season with salt.
It's a busy week ahead, so this will make great leftovers...
The table is all set...
