Cheesy rice

I like Risotto. But it takes a lot of work to make unless I want to buy the frozen Trader Joe's version. Nearly as good and much simpler is cheesy rice.

1 cup rice cooked however you usually do.
1 can cream soup. Tomato, celery, broccoli, mushroom (whatever you are in the mood for)
1 hand full shredded cheese, approximately equal to the can of soup.

Add soup and cheese to cooked rice, stir and serve.

I did the tomato version with pork chops, applesauce and steamed cauliflower last night.

Do you use the ready-to-serve soup or the kind that you have to add milk/water?

I use the normal kind you would add milk or water to but for this purpose I use it as is. I specifically do not buy the reduced fat versions. I want it thick and a bit sticky.
