Spicy Cheesy Chicken Bake Recipe @pinch

This cheesy goodness is a great twist on a classic chicken and rice casserole. We loved the bite jalapeno and chili powder gives the dish. Pepper jack and cheddar cheese add so much flavor and creaminess to the rice. This easy casserole can be quickly thrown together when you are in a pinch and your family will love it. Add a side salad and dinner is served. At the Valley Green Farm, we love havelove havelove cheese! And we really love spicy dishes, too. If your palate doesn't handle a lot of heat, this recipe can be toned down easily by omitting the jalapeno and chili powder. You can also substitute a little more shredded cheddar in place of the pepper jack cheese.For our version, we are keepin' it spicy!And... as always, we recommend using organic and locally haveproduced ingredients whenever possible!
