Cheesy pasta is my ultimate comfort food. But wait, Mexican is my ultimate comfort food. Let’s just mash them together and create THE ultimate comfort food! And when I say comfort food, I mean food you want to stuff your face with because its just so wonderfully delicious and creamy. And that’s just what happened with this One Pot Chicken Fajita Pasta.
I did a test run of this Chicken Fajita Pasta a couple Sundays ago when we invited a friend over for dinner whose wife was out of town. So there sat just three of us and one pot of pasta. We almost ate the entire pot to a chorus of “wow,” “this is amazing,” “this is seriously so good,” “I can’t wait to tell my wife about this,” “did I say how good this is?”
Thank goodness this One Pot Chicken Fajita Pasta is lightened up.
This One Pot Chicken Fajita Pasta is extra rave-worthy because the pasta cooks right in the sauce consisting of milk, enchilada sauce and Nuts.com Feisty Fiesta Salsa. If you are a salsa connoisseur, then look no further than this salsa. And if you aren’t a connoisseur, this Feisty Fiesta Salsa will make you one. It is hands down my favorite salsa made exclusively for Nuts.com in Texas from poblano, jalapeno and serrano peppers, feisty spices, bell peppers, cilantro, and lemon juice. Its a triumphant symphony of flavor that you will want to put on everything!
This Nuts.com Feisty Fiesta Salsa is on the medium/hot side, so I only used 1/2 cup but if you want to make this extra kid friendly or you are sensitive to heat, then I would start with 1/4 cup because you can always add more to taste at the end of cooking.
If you haven’t heard me talk about Nuts.com before, let me introduce you to my favorite source for practically everything, especially specialty items or hard-to-find items. Nuts.com has over 2,000 quality items that ship right to your door (no searching store to store!) – everything from delectable nuts and chocolate to specialty items for all your Asian, Italian and Mexican cooking needs. It’s a playground for you cooks and quality food lovers out there and makes fantastic gifts too!
So now that you know where to buy the best salsa ever, in order to make the best Chicken Fajita Pasta ever, let’s get cookin’!
How to Make Chicken Fajita Pasta
This One Pot Chicken Fajita Pasta comes together SUPER quickly. Prepping your chicken/veggies will take the longest, so if you prep those beforehand, then this dinner comes together in a flash. We start by sauteing our chicken and onions then adding our bell peppers, garlic and all our yummilicious seasonings.
Next, we stir in black beans, salsa, enchilada sauce, milk and pasta and bring to a simmer until the pasta is al dente.
At this point most of the liquid will be absorbed and ready to be cheesified with sharp cheddar followed by sour cream.
Garnish with fresh tomatoes, avocado, cilantro etc. and dig in to all that feisty fiesta deliciousness!
