  • 1 cup dry orzo pasta
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth (sub vegetable broth for vegetarian)
  • 2 15-ounce cans mild or medium red enchilada sauce
  • 1 15-ounce can yellow corn, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican-blend cheese
  • optional toppings: avocado, tomatoes, chopped cilantro, olives, sour cream, cottage cheese, salsa


  • Combine orzo, broth, enchilada sauce, corn, beans, and seasonings in a large nonstick (or well-greased) pot and sitr to combine. Cover and cook over medium-low heat 20-25 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and orzo is tender.
