Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Makeover - How We Did It
This better-for-you alternative can save you 110 calories and 11g of fat, including 8g of sat fat per serving when compared with the traditional recipe. We did it by preparing it with PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and KRAFT Mexican Style 2% Milk Finely Shredded Four Cheese, and decreased the amounts used for both.
Tip 2
Special Extra
Garnish each serving with 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro.
Tip 3
Variation
Prepare using corn tortillas. To prevent cracking, warm tortillas as directed on package before filling and baking as directed.
Tip 4
Nutrition Bonus
This flavorful chicken recipe uses lean meat to help you and your family eat right. And as a bonus, the cheese provides calcium, and the peppers team up to provide both an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin A.
