Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Cut cheese into same-sized chunks so they’ll melt evenly during cooking.
Time Saver
To cut down on some of the chopping, thaw 2 cups from a bag of frozen stir-fry bell pepper blend to use in place of the fresh version.
Special Touch
Multicolored tortilla chips lend a splash of Southwest color.
