    HEP MEP's Note:

    The Husband loves penne and rigatoni and this looked pretty good. From Food & Wine magazine... I'm breaking my personal rule again...I haven't tried this - yet - but I'm planning on making it in the next week or so...The recipe did not say whether or not you leave the chicken whole, but I'm planning on cuttting mine up into bite-size pieces... (made it last night- I halved the amount of chipolte/sauce because I didn't want too much heat and I also added some of the juice from the tomatoes. Really good. I highly recommend the queso blanco too - tastes great in this)

      We liked this recipe but thought it could use a little more seasoning. I added Cumin, Chili Powder and Mexican Oregano. I also added a can of black beans to round out the flavors. Am thinking of using a can of rotel diced tomatoes with green chilis and maybe a little lime juice to add a little extra kick.

      We LOVED this recipe!!! I used boneless chicken breasts that I cut into chunks. I also used 3 cloves of garlic and 2 chipotle peppers. We were shocked at how good it was. Will be fixing this recipe more often.

      This was delicious! I made it using boneless chicken thighs and whole wheat penne and I used a small chipotle in adobo. It wasn't hot at all, merely pleasantly tingly on the tongue. I have enough left over for another meal later in the week. Can't wait to try the leftovers!
