Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve with a crisp mixed green salad and side of hot cooked rice to round out the meal.
Creative Leftovers
Serve half of the recipe for dinner tonight. Refrigerate leftovers and use to make pork tostadas to serve at a later meal.
How to Toast Pumpkin Seeds
Heat large skillet on medium heat. Add pumpkin seeds; cook until toasted, stirring constantly to prevent burning. When the pumpkin seeds start to pop and release their aroma, they are done. Remove from heat and let cool.
