Chefs notes

This dinner entrée is really wonderful when prepared according to the package directions, but the flavor can be enhanced by adding a few simple ingredients and following the recipe directions below. Once you’ve tried the new recipe, you can try additional spices, like Mexican oregano, a pinch of ground cumin or fresh basil, or you can substitute a tablespoon of fresh avocado for the shredded cheese.
