Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Save time cleaning and slicing carrots by using 1 cup baby-cut carrots. Keeping a bag of ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots on hand is helpful when it comes to making soups and stews.
  • tip 2
    Serve with crusty garlic French bread and a salad of crisp Romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes and thin slices of red onion tossed with your favorite Caesar or ranch dressing.
