Fresh southwestern flavors make this extra-lean beef dish a tasty and simple solution to the “What’s for dinner?”
Ingredients
  Beef broth 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Orzo/Rosamarina pasta 9 Ounce (Uncooked)
  Green giant niblets vacuum packed whole kernel corn 11 Ounce (Undrained)
  Chopped green chili 4 1⁄2 Ounce, undrained (Old El Paso)
  Olive oil/Vegetable oil 2 Teaspoon
  Cut up extra lean beef 1⁄2 Pound (For Stir Fry)
  Bell pepper 1 Medium, cut into 1/4 inch strips
  Chopped cilantro 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

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.
