Broccoli Rice Casserole

Despite forcing this casserole down the throat of my four year old, I still feel like this recipe has promise:)  I’ve come to the conclusion you either like this casserole dish or you don’t but it’s always been a staple at our family gatherings.  It’s super budget friendly and makes for a great side dish or add chicken for a main dish.   If you want to kick it up add Mexican style cheese and Monterrey jack and maybe some cooked bacon because well… bacon makes everything better!!

4 tablespoons butter
12 to 16 ounces cooked broccoli (you can use frozen or steam fresh)
1 can cream of chicken or mushroom soup
1/8 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup Velveeta cheese
2 cups of cooked rice

Chop onion fine, and cook in butter until the onions are transparent.  Instead of frozen broccoli I used fresh and steamed it.
