Makeover - How We Did It
Here's a better-for-you alternative that will save you 140 calories and 17g of fat, including 10g of saturated fat, per serving when compared with the traditional recipe. We prepared it with extra-lean ground beef, KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and a reduced amount of BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream.
Cooking Know-How
To prepare, cut away the core. Remove seeds and membrane. Wash thoroughly. Wrap cut pieces tightly in plastic wrap to preserve fresh taste and crisp texture.
