Rice Surprise
from Little Rock Cooks... Recipes Handed Down from Generation to Generation

1 cup rice
Chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1-1/2 tablespoons Jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1-1/2 tablespoons Jalapeno juice
1/3 cup creamy Italian dressing
1 can water chestnuts, drained and sliced
1 pound Monterey Jack cheese, grated

Cook rice according to package directions, substituting chicken broth for water. Combine all ingredients except cheese. Pour one-half of the mixture into a 2 quart casserole; top with one-half of cheese. Repeat layer. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. (If you like very hot food, you may increase the quantity of Jalapenos.)
