Quick Queso Rice

Quick Queso Rice Recipe - fiesta cheese soup, instant rice, salsa, and cheese - ready in 10 minutes! Great Mexican side dish for Cinco de Mayo!

I am always looking for a quick Mexican side dish to go with our tacos or Mexican-style grilled chicken. We served this Quick Queso Rice with the Fiesta Lime Chicken I posted earlier this week. It was SO good! I could have actually make a meal out of this rice! It was that good. The best part about this recipe is that it only takes about 10 minutes to make!

I used a can of Campbell's Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup. They carry it at my Walmart and Publix. If you can't find the Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup, you can use a can of plain Cheese Soup and bump up the salsa a tablespoon or two.

  1. I made this for dinner last night using a can of Campbell's Poblano Queso soup- WOW! My local WM discontinued carrying that flavor though, so next time I'll use the Fiesta Nacho. It was delicious- and so easy!

  2. The Campbell's Poblano Queso soup is wonderful! I don't cook with condensed soups often but this one is a staple in my pantry. I have to order it via Amazon and they only sell it by the case so I split it with some neighbors and we share recipes back and forth. My husband requests this rice at least once a week!
