4 c. freshly cooked white rice
2 c. sour cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large skillet, sauté onion in hot butter until golden. Remove from heat and stir in hot rice, sour cream, cottage cheese, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Toss lightly to mix. In a greased 12 x 8 x 2 inch baking dish, layer half rice mixture in bottom and then half the chiles. Sprinkle half the cheese.
