Progresso Broth

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef (at least 90% lean)
  • 2 cups diced bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 cups Progresso™ beef flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 cup uncooked white basmati rice
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or cheddar cheese blend (6 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    In 5-quart Dutch oven, cook beef, bell peppers, onion, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is brown and vegetables soften.
  • 2
    Add garlic. Cook and stir 1 minute longer.
  • 3
    Reduce heat to medium; add broth, tomatoes, tomato sauce and soy sauce. Stir until well combined. Heat to boiling.
  • 4
    Add uncooked rice. Return to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer about 25 minutes or until rice is tender.
  • 5
    Remove from heat; stir in 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Cover; let stand 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

  • If you can’t find extra-lean beef, drain off extra grease after bell peppers have softened.
  • Have fun trying different colors of peppers to make this recipe pop with color!
  • We used fragrant basmati rice for testing this recipe, but long-grain white rice works well, too.
