Cheesy Confetti Rice Recipe

The other day I made some deliciously tender Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Gravy, so my mom decided to concoct a Cheesy Confetti Rice recipe, that was a big hit. Finding tasty rice recipes are kind of tricky I think, so I’m glad to have a new one that we enjoy! I think the rice was a nice colorful addition to the meal. I think this rice recipe is a great way to sneak veggies in, if you have picky eaters!!
