Mexican Rice, Corn, & Poblano Bake Recipe


Looking for a good side dish to serve with Mexican food? Mexican Rice, Corn, & Poblano Bake is a great change from the standard refried beans and Spanish rice. It goes well with Mexican dishes such as marinated grilled skirt steak, enchiladas, and burritos. It also makes a great meatless main dish.
””
The recipe uses leftover cooked rice, frozen corn, and pre-shredded cheddar-jack cheese. The poblano peppers give the dish a bit of heat and a wonderful flavor; however, it takes a few minutes to roast, cool, and peel the peppers. If there’s no time to roast the peppers, a 4-ounce can of diced green chilies and two diced jalapeno peppers may be substituted.

12 Servings

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup onions, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped

3 poblano chili peppers, roasted, peeled, seeded, and chopped (see note) or 1 4-ounce can diced green chilies and 2 diced jalapeno peppers
1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar jack cheese
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
2 cups frozen corn
3 cups cooked rice, (cooked with salt and butter)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Spray a 9 x 9" casserole dish with non-stick spray.

  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet; add the onion and cook until limp.

  4. Stir in the garlic and cook one minute.

  5. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl.

  6. Add the chopped peppers, sour cream, 2 cups of the cheese, cilantro, corn, and rice.

  7. Mix well and pour into the prepared baking dish.

  8. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup grated cheese.

  9. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the rice mixture is hot and the cheese is bubbly.

Note: To roast poblano peppers, place them on a baking sheet under the broiler (oven door open), broil until blistered on all sides, place in a sealed Ziploc-type bag, and let cool. When cool, the blistered skin will pull off easily. Pull out the core and wash away the seeds under cold running water.
