Progresso Broth

Steps

  • 1
    Mix broth, pasta, corn and chilies in 2-quart saucepan. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until pasta is just tender; remove from heat. Let stand about 5 minutes or until almost all liquid is absorbed.
  • 2
    While pasta mixture is cooking, spray 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add oil; heat over medium-high heat. Cook beef and bell pepper in oil about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown.
  • 3
    Stir beef mixture into pasta mixture. Stir in cilantro.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Orzo is a tiny pasta shaped like grains of rice. This mini-pasta is ideal for soups, casseroles and one-dish skillet meals.
  • tip 2
    Make it meatless by replacing the beef with a 15-ounce can of black beans, drained, and the beef broth with veggie broth.
