2 T. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, peeled, minced
1 small onion, peeled, minced
2 C. long-grain rice
2 C. chicken broth
1 large bunch chopped cilantro leaves
1 C. fresh corn or canned whole kernel corn
1 C. shredded Chihuahua cheese or mozzarella cheese
1 roasted poblano or jalapeno chile, seeds removed and cut into strips
In a saucepan heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and
sauté until glossy. Add the rice and sauté until glossy but not brown. Add 1 cup
