  We love rice.  We eat it with many of our meals but usually it’s either plain or I make the traditional Mexican (tomato based) rice.  When I saw this cheesy sour cream rice I was excited to try it.  It didn’t disappoint!  It was creamy, cheesy, and flavorful.  It went perfect with the chicken tortilla soup we had.  My husband added some hot sauce to his and said it was awesome.
