Chicken Fiesta Chili Mac

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chef Petunia

This is super good. I used Adobo Seasoning from Penzeys to season the chicken and some leftover chili in my freezer. I also used Ronzoni Smart Taste mini penne in place of the elbows. Recipe comes from "Velveeta -- Crowd Pleasing Recipes".

Great casserole. I usually cut recipes back for just 2 of us, but made the whole recipe for this. Glad I did. My grandson inhaled this and it was all gone in the first day! The only change that I made was to also use red and yellow peppers with the green since I had some on hand. Thanks for sharing, Chef Petunia. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
