Cheesy Broccoli Rice Bake

The Menu:
Cheesy Broccoli Rice Bake


The Original Recipe:
I found this on Recipezaar. I used Velveeta Cheese instead of the shredded cheeses. I melted them with the soups in the microwave before I added it all together. YUM! Another one my kids actually ate! The Way I Made it My Own follows after this...

Cheesy Broccoli-Rice Bake Recipe #79688


If you are looking for an easy-to-put-together great-tasting rice dish...well, here's one, and boy is it good!...When you try this one, it will become a favorite I am sure. (Note: Fresh broccoli is recommended in this recipe, as the frozen tends to become very mushy after baking with the rice)
