Margarita Chicken Pasta Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Megans Mommy

This is a great cold pasta salad. It combines the taste of Mexican food, with pasta. Best served cold. You can leave out the tequila if you wish. I like to make this with the multi colored pasta rotini, but you could use any noodle shape or color

I used the noodles from ramen for my pasta and it turned out great. I chose ramen because I thought it would be a light, flavor-absorbing pasta an it was a big hit. :-)
