Nutritious Freezer Meal Carnival

Lindsey, from Passionate Homemaking, is hosting a fantastic Nutritious Freezer Meal Carnival this week. I'm so excited as this falls right in line with the Nutritional Goals that I'm hoping to incorporate in our family this year. I'm constantly looking for new and useful, as well as easy ideas for our family. So while this recipe can still use some "tweaking" to make it more nutritious, we love it and it's very easy to prepare and freeze ahead.

Chicken and Rice Casserole

2 C cooked Chicken
2 C cooked Brown Rice, cooked in chicken broth (Ok you can use Rice a Roni, but...)
1 C grated cheese
1 diced onion
1 sm. can chopped chilies
1 can creamed soup

Mix all together and pour in 9 x 13 pan
Top with a little more cheese
Cover with foil
Bake at 350 degrees until heated through (30-45 min)

This is so yummy. We all really enjoy it, and as I tell my husband, all things in moderation. Yeah, there's cheese, but all things in moderation. This freezes very well. Just sit on the counter to thaw for a little while and pop in the oven.
