Kraft Kitchens Tips

Small Changes Add Up
Small ingredient substitutions, such as BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream, and a 7-oz. pkg. of KRAFT 2% Milk Natural Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese, result in a savings of 50 calories and 6g of fat, including 3g of sat fat, per serving when compared to a traditional recipe.
Serving Suggestion
Serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
Prepare using 1 can (11 oz.) corn with red and green bell peppers.
