Kraft Kitchens Tips

Food Facts
The name "cancato" comes from the indigenous Indian word for grilling. In Chile, this recipe is typically prepared with a whole fish that is opened like a book, topped with the chorizo, cheese and garlic mixture, then grilled flat.
How to Substitute Regular Heavy-Duty Foil for Nonstick Foil
If you don't have nonstick foil, you can use regular heavy-duty foil instead. Just spray with cooking spray or brush lightly with canola or vegetable oil before using as directed.
