Guys. I am really loving these Kraft Recipe Makers. You know, the new product that Kraft developed that gives you two complimentary sauces that you add your own ingredients to, to make some seriously easy and delicious dishes. Seriously delicious dishes like this Verde Chicken Enchilada Pizza.
Like for reals. I am loving them.
Let me tell you why.
I’ve been going to Barre 3 times a week for a while now and two of those are nights during the work week. And in an effort to avoid paying a babysitter to watch little dude, I always pick a time when Ryan is home to watch him. The classes usually end right smack dab at dinner time meaning that I don’t have a whole lot of time to put into a meal before I have to give Kellan a bath, read him a story, sing him a lullaby and put him to bed.
But that doesn’t mean that I’m just going to throw some pb&j sandwiches on the table and call it good.
Not that I don’t like pb&j, I do. I just want something more for dinner. Something with a bit more flavor. Something a little heartier. And since I have a 21 month old, chances are I probably had pb&j for lunch anyway.
That is where these Kraft Recipe Makers have really helped me. They make making a flavorful, delicious dinner quick and easy.
Take this pizza for instance. You know me, I love, love, love pizza. I love pizza so much that we eat it every Friday. So when Kraft asked me to come up with a second recipe (check out my first one here), using another Kraft Recipe Makers I decided that I wanted to make a pizza with it. And for some reason the Verde Chicken Enchilada Recipe Makers jumped out at me. Perhaps it was the fact that I could imagine all of that chile, cheesy chicken goodness of those enchiladas sitting on top of a perfectly chewy pizza crust.
And that is exactly what this pizza is. Cheesy, chile, chicken heaven.
Oh and something else…I made a video for you. A video showing you just how easy these Recipe Makers are to use.
Yes, I made a video. I was a wee-bit nervous about making it. I’ve never done video before. I’ve had food TV aspirations before. For like 60 seconds and then I remembered that to be on TV you actually had to be on camera.
It actually wasn’t all that bad though. It was kind of fun. My favorite part is that in the video you actually get to see the pizza get all melty and bubbly. Mmmm cheesy, melty, bubbly pizza. Who else is hungry?
