KRAFT Recipe Makers – Verde Chicken Enchiladas

Are you familiar with layering? And no, I don’t mean with scarves, sweaters, and jackets in the winter! HA. I mean in cooking. Layering flavor is a technique that any worthy chef uses, and any home cook can, too. Easily. It’s all about combining and deepening flavors in a dish with spices, liquids, vegetables, and meats. 

Say, for instance, you sauté some onions in olive oil. Ok, yum. But how much better and richer would they be if you also added in some butter, pepper, and an herb? Way better. The second option layers in more flavor. The great thing about this technique is that it can be applied to the fanciest of meals, or the most basic ones.

My favorite ways of layering in flavor are by seasoning every element of the dish, using a chicken or vegetable stock instead of water, and incorporating in some citrus juice or zest, which can perk up your taste buds!

KRAFT understands the importance of layering in flavor, and they also know how hard it can be to create meals from scratch all the time. So, they recently developed a new product line, KRAFT Recipe Makers, which layers in flavor and cuts the prep time time in half, sometimes even more!

Each package comes with two complimentary sauces (which would normally require hours of cooking time if you prepared them on your own) and three recipes for variety. You supply the fresh produce, protein, or grains, and they supply the rest, resulting in one delicious dish.

There are 9 different products, which essentially gives you 27 recipes to try! So far, I have tried 3 of them and I have to say, Paul and I were genuinely impressed.

The first package I made was these Verde Chicken Enchiladas. I roasted my own chicken the day before, which made the prep time only 10 minutes. Dinner was on the table in 30, start to finish. And it tasted really great. And fresh.
