Ingredients

  • 2 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped broccoli
  • 3 cups instant rice
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 (16 ounce) package processed American cheese, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 bunch celery, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Cook broccoli and rice according to package directions. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium saucepan over low heat, mix cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, and 1 1/4 cups water. Gradually stir in cheese until melted. Be careful that the cheese doesn't burn.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat, and cook and stir celery and onion until soft.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine broccoli, rice, soup and cheese mixture, celery and onion. Season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, until bubbly and lightly brown.

Note: Using Colby or Monterey Jack cheese instead of processed American cheese is great!
