Kraft Kitchens Tips

Food Facts
Pimenton is a unique spice made from spicy red peppers that have been harvested and smoke-dried with oak wood, which gives the pimenton its smoky flavor. Pimenton comes in three varieties: sweet and mild (dulce); bittersweet medium hot (agridulce) and hot (picante). The level of spiciness is up to you! Pimenton can be stored in a cool dry place for up to 2 years. Though a distant cousin of Hungarian paprika, pimenton has no good substitute for use in authentic Spanish cooking.
Prepare as directed, using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth and RITZ Reduced Fat Crackers.
Food Facts
Fresh garlic is available year round. Purchase firm, plump bulbs with dry skins. Avoid garlic stored in the refrigerated section of the produce department. Store garlic in an open container in a cool, dark place.
