Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Roast 1 poblano chile; remove peel, membranes and seeds. Chop pepper. Add to skillet with shrimp and garlic.
Note
The KRAFT Singles are melted in the reserved pasta cooking water for a quick cheesy sauce. For best results, the Singles must be completely melted before adding the sauce to the other ingredients in skillet.
Food Facts
Spanish chorizo is different than the more commonly used Mexican chorizo. Also known as hard-cured chorizo, Spanish chorizo is a firm ready-to-eat sausage that can be used in a variety of recipes. Typically found in the deli case of larger supermarkets, its flavor ranges from mild and sweet to hot and spicy. If you can't find Spanish chorizo, you can use any hard salami instead.
