      So yummy! A great side dish. This is your dish if you need to put more effort into a another dish. I used oil packed sun dried tomatoes and put the tomatoes b/n a couple of paper towels to soak up the oil. No need to soak if you used the oil packed tomatoes. I love the zing of the green chilies. This was wonderful!

      This was a great spicy sort of Southwest risotto. I also love the method. I decreased the salt, omitted the butter and served it with nonfat sour cream. I have been making Oven-Baked Risotto (Several Variations) for years, but this opens more options. And the end result is still wonderful! Served 2-3 as a main course.

      I love this recipe. I've made it twice--once without onions, which was still delicious--and once with red onions and a handful of crumbled bacon, which made a superb one dish meal. Both times I used sun-dried tomatoes in oil (drained) and Smart Balance instead of butter.
