Progresso Broth

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut two 18x12-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil. Spray half of one side of each piece with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 1 1/2-quart saucepan, heat broth to boiling; remove from heat. Stir in rice and 2 teaspoons Mexican seasoning; let stand about 5 minutes or until broth is absorbed. Stir in corn, bell pepper and onions.
  • 3
    Sprinkle each pork chop with 1/2 teaspoon Mexican seasoning; place on center of sprayed half of foil. Spoon rice mixture over pork. Fold foil over pork and rice so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.
  • 4
    Cover and grill packets over medium heat 15 to 20 minutes or until pork is no longer pink in center and meat thermometer inserted in center reads 160°F. Place packets on plates. Cut large X across top of each packet; fold back foil. Serve with salsa.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you can’t find Mexican seasoning, use Cajun seasoning. You will create a spicier, yet very flavorful, main dish.
