Kraft Kitchens Tips

Makeover - How We Did It
This delicious made-over version of beef enchiladas can save you 190 calories and 18g of fat, including 6g of sat fat, per serving. These savings are the result of using extra-lean beef and decreasing the amount, adding peppers, and using KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese.
Cooking Know-How
Corn tortillas are typically fried in oil to prevent cracking, but in this healthful version the tortillas are warmed in the microwave before using to minimize cracking.
