Chicken Enchilada Pasta

If you have been reading MommaCooks long enough you may have noticed that we eat A LOT of pasta around here. When I see a new pasta dish that looks good, I almost always give it a try. I am so glad I made this one, not only is it deelish, but it made so much food that we are going to be eating it for dinner again tonight.

~ 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
2 TBSP oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 medium onion
1/2 red bell pepper
1 – 4oz. can chopped chilis
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
2 – 10 oz. cans green enchilada sauce
1/2 cup red enchilada sauce
2 cups shredded cheese
1 cup sour cream
salt & pepper to taste
1 pound pasta

Cook pasta according to directions.

Meanwhile, heat oil in large pan, saute onion and pepper until soft. Add garlic for just about 30 seconds, stirring frequently. Add chilis, enchilada sauces, chili powder, cumin, and chicken. Stir to combine, then let simmer over medium heat for 5-10 minutes.

Just before serving add in cheese and stir to melt. Turn off heat, then add sour cream and combine well. Pour over cooked pasta, stir it up and serve!

What did the family think? Hubby and I loved it and both had seconds. Our oldest liked it and wanted to have it in his lunch the next day. Our youngest didn’t like it, but I knew he wouldn’t like it before I even made it, so no surprises there.
