Chicken Enchilada Pasta

Total Time

This was made by combining 2 recipes I found a few years ago. We like to mix it with Penne pasta instead of making enchiladas. If you have extra mixture it does freeze well before adding the pasta.

Very rich and creamy recipe. I added an extra teaspoon of chili powder and 1 teaspoon minced garlic. Made a very easy night of cooking for me. Thanks.

I thought this recipe was very good. I was also easy to throw together. My son did not like the chiles in it, but I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. I don't know if the pasta mixture will freeze very well, but I'm going to try it.

The overall concept of this dish is really good. The problem both my husband and I had with it was that it wasn't spicy at all. I even used double the amount of chili powder that the recipe called for. For the left-overs I sprinkled a bunch of red pepper flakes on top.
