Southwestern Risotto

Ingredients 1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup uncooked rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
6 cups chicken broth, divided
2 medium tomatoes, chopped and seeded
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 to 3 tablespoons minced cilantro
1 jalapeno pepper, minced

Cook onion and garlic in butter over medium heat until soft. Add rice stirring 2 to 3 minutes. Add wine, stir until absorbed. Increase heat to medium-high; stir in 1 cup broth. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently, until broth is absorbed. Continue stirring adding remaining broth allowing each cup to be absorbed before adding another, until rice is tender and mixture has a creamy consistency. It will take approximately 25 to 30 minutes.

Stir in tomato, green onion, cream, cheese, cilantro and pepper. Stir until mixture is creamy, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
