This Green Chile Chicken Rice-A-Roni Casserole was a HUGE hit in our house. We could not stop eating it! It was even great reheated for lunch the next day.

Just a note on this recipe- I used a box of Chicken Rice-A-Roni for this casserole, but you could definitely use my homemade version of Chicken Rice-A-Roni in this dish. Either is great.

  2. I'm always looking for ways to avoid sour cream (personal preference, I just really dislike the stuff). Any recommendations for a substitute? Or could it just be left out?

    1. Haha, I don't like Greek Yogurt because it tastes just like sour cream to me! I'll probably just leave it out. Thanks!

  4. I made a modified version of this for my vegetarian niece using the Homemade Vegetarian Rice A Roni dish from VegGirlRD.com and subbing vegetarian (generally mushroom) for anything that was chicken or meat based. My niece L O V E D it! She ate it for dinner on Saturday, lunch on Sunday, and took the rest for her school lunch on Monday. AMAZING!! She does prefer a more mild flavor profile so I used Monterey Jack instead of Pepper Jack but we all enjoyed it and she inhaled it. This has gone into our regular meal rotation. Even my carnivore husband enjoys this as a vegetarian side dish. Thank you for continuing to share awesome and versatile recipes!!
