Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Red pepper flakes can be quite spicy. For children or those who do not enjoy spicy food, eliminate red pepper flakes from the recipe.
  • tip 2
    Queso fresco cheese is very similar in texture to feta cheese. If you are unable to find queso fresco cheese, substitute feta cheese.
