Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Can't decide on one topping? Try a combination!
Cilantro has a lively taste that pairs well with Tex-Mex dishes. The leafy herb looks a lot like parsley, but its fragrant scent will help you tell them apart.
Prepare first 2 steps as directed; cover and refrigerate for up to 6 hours. Top with toppings just before serving.
