Kraft Kitchens Tips:
Makeover - How We Did It
Here's a better-for-you alternative that will save you 110 calories and 11 grams of fat, including 8 grams of saturated, fat per serving when compared with the traditional recipe. We did it by preparing it with PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and KRAFT Mexican Style 2% Milk Finely Shredded Four Cheese and decreased the amounts used for both.

Special Extra:
Garnish each serving with 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro.

Prepare using corn tortillas. To prevent cracking, warm tortillas as directed on package before filling and baking as directed.
