    Remove skillet from heat. Stir in cheese. Cover; let stand 3 minutes. Sprinkle with chives.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you use regular long-grain white rice instead of the Arborio rice, the finished dish will be less creamy with more separate, distinct rice grains. The reason: regular white rice doesn't contain as much starch as Arborio rice does.
  • tip 2
    Serve this meaty risotto with a Caesar salad and French bread for an easy weeknight meal.
