Take 1/2 cup chopped onions, 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper, 2 cups mashed potatoes, 1 egg, 1/2 cup crushed RITZ Crackers (about 25) and 2 cups oil and mix & match your recipe from these options...

2 cups shredded cooked beef Mild Cheddar canned chopped green chiles, drained
2 cups shredded cooked pork Mexican Style Finely Shredded Four Cheese chopped jalapeno peppers
2 cans (5 oz. each) tuna, drained, flaked Colby & Monterey chopped red bell peppers

Then follow our 3 simple steps:

COOK and stir onions, 1/4 cup flavoring and crushed red pepper in skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium-high heat 10 min. or until onions are crisp-tender. Set aside.

COMBINE meat, 1/2 cup KRAFT Shredded Cheese and potatoes in large bowl. Add onion mixture; mix well. Cool completely. Shape into 15 (3-inch) sausage-shaped croquettes (or into 12 croquettes for tuna mixture). Dip, 1 at a time, in beaten egg then in cracker crumbs, turning to evenly coat both sides of each croquette.
