Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Make them your own! Experiment with different cheeses and herbs, such as shredded Mexican 4-cheese blend and cilantro or shredded Italian blend and basil.
  • tip 2
    These reheat beautifully in the microwave, but don’t forget to remove the foil liners first!
