If you wanna add something, serve it with a fresh Salad and Cornbread.

Can I store the leftovers?

You can surely freeze this dish but I would recommend freezing it without the sour cream and cheese.

Add sour cream when you reheat.

I would also recommend adding a bit more liquid or sauce in order to rehydrate the rice as they become dry.
