Prepare using KRAFT Mexican Style 2% Milk Finely Shredded Four Cheese.
Tip 2
How to Easily Cut Chicken
Cutting boneless skinless chicken breasts into pieces can be a slippery task. Make it safer and prevent the knife from slipping by cutting the chicken while it is partially frozen. The firmer chicken is much easier to cut and handle.
