Southwestern Chicken Pasta

Total Time

Cook 15 mins

Similar to the Senora Chicken at Ruby Tuesday's, this is the simplified version. You can spice it up by cooking the chicken in southwestern spices, adding spinach, or making your own sauce using Velveeta cheese and salsa.

So rich and creamy! I prefer a thicker sauce so I only used 1/3 cup of milk...and most of the jar of queso. Easy and simple, though probably not very healthy heh.

Perhaps a little more help on the sauce part. That's a pretty vague description there. I'm cooking impared so I need a little help.
