As a crazy-busy work-at-home mom of four equally crazy kiddos, I am ALWAYS on the look-out for tasty and quick weeknight dinners. After a long day of writing, laundry, play-dough, email answering, and general kid-wrangling, the last thing I want to do is figure out what to fix for dinner.

As a huge fan of semi-homemade cooking and a lover of quality pantry ingredients, I was thrilled to learn about Kraft’s fabulous new product, Recipe Makers! Just what is a Recipe Maker you might ask, and to you I say – excellent question! Each and every of Kraft’s 7 different varieties comes with 2 incredible sauces, that when combined with your fresh ingredients, can create one of THREE different dishes!

I LOVED that with very little effort, I had a delicious homemade meal on the table in no time! I gathered up a handful of fresh ingredients – chicken, corn tortillas, and cheese, and with the help of my two savory sauces found in my Recipe Makers box, I was able to serve up Verde Chicken Enchiladas!


I sliced and browned off my chicken breast tenders, and then mixed my chicken with the Creamy Ranchero sauce found in my Recipe Makers box. I poured half of my Tomatillo Finishing Sauce in a 13×9 pan. I spooned some of the chicken mixture into each of my corn tortillas, rolled them up, and placed them in the pan. I topped the enchiladas with more Tomatillo Finishing Sauce and some grated cheese. It was SO simple!

enchiladaI wish I could insert the amazing smell that filled my house while these enchiladas were in the oven. My house smelled like an amazing Mexican restaurant. We had just gotten home from vacation (proof that you can use Recipe Makers on even your craziest of days!) and were all starving. We could not wait to try these! I quickly made a veggie and a fruit salad, and we were all set!

kidtestedThe verdict? This was kid-tested and approved! Even my picky eater ate their entire enchilada, and one of my kids even asked for seconds! We will definitely be buying this product again, and I can’t wait to try the other varieties!

Kraft Recipe Makers offers busy moms like me and you a helping hand at dinner time. It’s quick to prepare, budget-friendly, and tasty! I love that you have 3 different meal options with each box, so you can choose the recipe that YOUR family will most enjoy. You can even choose from a variety of preparation methods including oven, skillet, and slow cooker! Choose what you like and what works with your needs and preferences.

Kraft Recipe Makers are available at all Safeway stores and local Safeway affiliates. Kraft Recipe Makers will be found either in the meat department or near the refrigerated meat coolers OR in the “meal starters” section of your grocery store. I found my box near the packaged spices and gravies. I know your family will enjoy Kraft Recipe Makers! Pick up a box on your next trip to the store!
