Jalapeño, Rice and Chicken Casserole

Did you end up with tons of cooked white rice in your fridge? Give it a twist and turn it into a flavor-loaded green chile and rice casserole by adding just a few ingredients. It's perfect with rotisserie chicken, but you can also prepare it without the chicken. You can serve this as a main dish for lunch or dinner and top it with chorizo or bacon to add a crunchy kick to it.
If you want to make a healthier version, substitute white rice for brown rice.
