Steps

  • 1 Bring broth to a boil in medium saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low to keep broth barely simmering.
  • 2 Meanwhile, chop green onions, separating white portion from green tops. Reserve chopped green tops.
  • 3 Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat until hot. Add white portion of chopped onions; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until tender.
  • 4 Add rice; cook and stir until thoroughly heated. Add 1/2 cup hot broth; cook and stir until almost all liquid is absorbed. Continue adding broth 1/2 cup at a time, cooking and stirring for about 30 minutes or until rice is creamy but still firm in the center, adding corn during last 10 minutes of cooking time. There may be a small amount of broth remaining.
  • 5 Stir in cheese. Sprinkle with chopped green onion tops.
