Foodie Friday: Chicken Enchilada Pasta

I found this amazingly delicious recipe on pinterest and figured that I had to post it on here because it was too good to not share. My whole family, but especially my husband absolutely loved it! This dish does require quite a bit of ingredients, but it is well worth it! The recipe can be found on this site.

Chicken Enchilada Pasta

  • 1 rotissere chicken shredded
  • 2 TBS olive oil ( I just used some canola oil cause that's what I had on hand)
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 can diced green chiles (4oz)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 cans green chili enchilada sauce
  • 2/3 cup red enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (any kind)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Penne pasta

  • sour cream
  • green onions
  • tomatoes
  • olives
Shred chicken. Chop veggies. Boil pasta according to package directions. Heat oil in large skillet
 and cook onion for 3-5 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper and cook for another 3-5 minutes.Add cooked chicken, green chiles, cumin, chili powder, salt, and enchilada sauces. Let it simmer for 8-10 minutes. Add cheese and stir until is is melted and heated through. Slowly add sour cream and make sure to NOT LET IT BOIL! Stirl just until heated through. Add cooked and drained pasta to the skillet. Mix well. Serve and garnish with desired toppings. Enjoy!
