"I love cooking my mom’s creamy rice. It’s a rice casserole loaded with cheese, roasted poblano peppers, corn, and you bake it. It’s so decadent, cheesy, and fatty. Definitely a comfort food."
Bring water to a boil and add butter and salt.
When the butter is melted add the rice and bring back to a boil. Lower the heat to very low and cover the rice with a tight-fitting lid and cook for 25 to 30 minutes,
Take rice out of the saucepan and spread on a baking sheet to cool or allow to cool in the pan uncovered
Meanwhile, combine the sour cream with the ¼ cup chopped onion and cilantro and add salt to taste.

Let cool and combine with the rice.
Add the corn to the cooled rice and poblano mixture.
