Chipotle Chicken Meatball Sliders #KraftFreshTake


Chipotle Chicken Meatball Sliders

I hope you have enjoyed the #KraftFreshTake challenge as much as I have.  It has been great to get to know a new product, and create new and fun ways to use it.  So many people think they are too busy to cook on weeknights, but Kraft Fresh Take really does make it easy to make a quick and healthy meal for your family.  In case you missed the other recipes in the challenge, I made Spicy Chipotle French Toast and Chipotle Shrimp Tacos.

In addition to these chicken meatball sliders today, there is a great giveaway from Kraft.  I also get to unveil my Kraft Fresh Take Pinterest board I have been working on.  It is all inspired by my Kraft Fresh Take variety “Spicy Chipotle Cheddar”.

For the final recipe I created these fun little sliders.  Kids love meatballs, so these are a great way to make the kids happy too. Kraft Fresh Take is a cheese and breadcrumb mix that has all the seasonings included.  So making meatballs was as easy as mixing the meat with the Kraft Fresh Take.

Roll into 1 inch balls….

Instead of traditional mayo to top the sliders, I made a quick chipotle sauce.  I mixed in some Greek yogurt to make it a little better for you. I also added a little lime juice, salt and pepper (sorry, not pictured)

Then top with whatever you like.  I chose tomatoes and avocados for mine.Chipotle Chicken Meatball Sliders
