Where to buy Kraft Recipe Makers  #CookinComfort  #shop

A few days ago I headed to Walmart to try out the Tex Mex Chicken Fajita Recipe Makers from Kraft. I have made the New England Pot Roast and was ready to experiment with a new flavor. Like, I said, I love Mexican food, so this was an easy choice.

Instead of making the fajita recipe on the box, I used the same ingredients to make a comforting, cheesy casserole! It has been so stinkin cold here, that a nice hot casserole sounded like the perfect meal.

  6. ErikA says:

    Do you think it would be a good recipe to freeze? :)

  7. Sharalyn says:

    would corn and black beans be ok

  8. Nikki says:

    Is there an alternative product(s) I can use for the Recipe Makers? I know this is the key ingredient for this dish, but I’ve call ALL the stores in my area and no one sells this. I REALLY want to make this. :(

    • Stephanie says:

      Nikki, I would just add 1 tsp cumin, 1 TBS chili powder, 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1 1/2 tsp onion powder. And add salt to taste. Or just add a packet of fajita seasoning if you prefer. If it seems a bit dry just add in some olive oil. Hope you give it a try. We love this!

    • Carissa says:

      Thank you for asking. I cant find it either. :)
