{Chicken Enchilada Pasta}

This meal was really simple to throw together and it was a good mix up from regular pasta dishes. The Mexican flavors were really creamy and delicious.

 

Ingredients:

2 tbsp. olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 {4 oz.} can diced green chiles
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin

1 cup sour cream
Penne pasta
Optional toppings
Avocado
Green Onions
Black Olives
Tomatoes
Sour Cream
Directions:
Cook chicken, drain, and shred.  Meanwhile boil pasta according to package and chop the veggies. Heat olive oil in a deep skillet and cook onions for about 3 mintures. Add garlic and red pepper and cook another 3 minutes.
Add cooked chicken, green chilies, cumin, chili powder, salt and enchilada sauces. Let sauce simmer for about 10 minutes. Add cheese and stir until the cheese is melted and heated through. Now toss in the 1 cup of sour cream, DO NOT bring to a boil otherwise it will curdle. Stir until the sour cream is well mixed and heated through. Drain the pasta and return to pot. Pour sauce and mix well. Serve and garnish with option toppings.
