4 Ingredients: Acapulco Fantasy

Acapulco Fantasy is another 4 ingredient dish. Keith picked this one as his first to try from a recipe book we got from my mom. He added everything to our grocery list and fixed it mid-week! I was definitely a hit. Simple and quick meals are a must for us, some weeks and this one was fun. Was it a fantasy? Maybe not, but I love the name!


1 lb jack cheese, shredded

3 c greek yogurt

8 oz diced green chiles

4 c cooked long grain rice

Extras: Dash of Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper


Can opener, large mixing bowl, spoon for mixing, medium-sized pot, casserole dish (9×13), and serving spoon


1.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

In the medium-sized pot:

2. Cook the long grain rice. Use directions on the package to prepare rice.

In the large mixing bowl:

3.  Add the chiles, greek yogurt, Worcestershire sauce, and salt. Mix thoroughly.

In the casserole dish:

4.  Spread 1/3 of the cooked rice in the baking dish.

5.  Cover with 1/2 of the greek yogurt mixture and 1/2 of the jack cheese.

6.  Repeat layers.

7.  Top with rice and sprinkle with cheese.

8.  Bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes.

We chose to serve this up in a bowl and it was the perfect decision! Enjoy!
