I was editing the photos of this recipe and I realized it looks a lot like a past Mexican Skillet meal I've made.
But trust me, they make look the same but they taste extremely different.

I love a good rice casserole! Especially one that can be made right on the stovetop!

I love this dish because it is so hearty that you don't really need anything to go with it. And yes, corn is not the most nutritionally based veggie but its a perfect addition to this dish.
