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.

Special Extra

Garnish each serving with 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro.

Variation

Prepare using corn tortillas. To prevent cracking, warm tortillas as directed on package before filling and baking as directed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was wonderful. This was wonderful. I got rave reviews. I used high fiber shells and I had to stop my son from eating another since he at THREE!! Added onion powder to the chicken, and didn't have a green pepper, but the flavor was still amazing.
