How easy can a risotto get? Try this Southern spicy one to find out

Print this recipe
Southern spicy risotto is your new weekend best friend. If you’ve had a long week, and you need to cook for the family, but you do not feel like making a 20-step meal, this creamy risotto is flavorful and impressive, but does not require a multitude of dishes or complicated steps.
Once you have finished chopping and sautéing the vegetables, you can measure out the broth and pretty much finish this dish with one hand tied behind your back (or wrangling kids, or even scrolling through Instagram). But the result is delicious, hearty, and perfectly spicy every time!
