Let's Make It
1
In a large bowl, combine rice, chicken, beans, corn, tomatoes, cilantro, cumin, garlic powder, oregano, chili powder, and hot pepper. Stir to blend.
2
In a saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat; stir in flour until well blended and bubbly. Gradually stir in milk, chicken broth, and salt & pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Stir into the rice and chicken mixture. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding more salt/pepper as needed.
3
Pour into a 2-quart casserole sprayed lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
4
Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes, or until bubbly. If desired, sprinkle with the cheese about 5-8 minutes before done. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and chopped green onions and tomatoes, if desired.
