Time for installment #2 of the #KraftFreshTake Recipe Challenge! In case you missed the first installment, Kraft Foods invited me to participate in the Fresh Take Flavor Makers program, a program where participants are challenged to create different meals using one Kraft Fresh Take variety. Each blogger was challenged to Make Something Amazing with #KraftFreshTake. The item I was assigned to use for the challenge is the Kraft Fresh Take Classic Four Cheese variety. The Classic Four Cheese variety is a mixture of Colby, Cheddar, Monterey Jack and Mozzarella cheeses – four of my favorites. For the first part of the challenge I made Cheesy Chicken With Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad. This week I had a new challenge.
1. Use four ingredients in your entire meal.
2. The meal must include the colors green, red and orange.
3. Break out the skillet and see how it brings out the flavors of Fresh Take.
Using only four ingredients was the big challenge for me here. As you will see I ended up technically using five ingredients, if you count the Kraft Fresh Take. The mandatory color use made me think of peppers, as did the skillet. But I wanted to be different, so I set out to figure out something a bit unique.
Here’s what I came up with.
Cheesy Chicken Stuffed Peppers Recipe With Kraft Fresh Take
- 2 cups uncooked regular long-grain white rice
- 4 large bell peppers (I used 4 different colored peppers)
- 1 package Kraft Fresh Take
- 1 lb ground chicken breast
- 1x 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
- salt and pepper to taste
Cook the rice according to instructions on the package.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large sized bowl, combine the Kraft Fresh Take and the ground chicken breast and roll it into very small balls. Yep, tiny little chicken meatballs.
In a large skillet, brown the chicken meatballs.
Wash the peppers. Then, cut the tops off of the peppers and remove the insides of the peppers including seeds.
Place the cooked rice into the empty large bowl. Combine the rice, the cooked chicken meatballs and 3/4 of the can of tomatoes, stirring gently.
Spoon the mixture into the peppers.
Place the peppers into an ungreased baking pan.
Top the peppers with the remaining tomatoes.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Kraft Fresh Take is available in six varieties:
- Southwest Three Cheese

be sure to check back next week, when I’ll have something new and interesting to share, as well as a really great, fun giveaway that you won’t want to miss. For now, I’d love to know how what your favorite variety of Kraft Fresh Take is or which you’d most like to try.
