Melissa's Story

Pasta Diablo is my favorite dish from Carlos O'kelly's and since they closed down in town here I had to get in the kitchen and figure out how to make it. This is my version.


3 c
fajita chicken meat, diced
6 Tbsp

1/2 c
diced onion
1/4 c
diced green pepper
4 clove
garlic minced
2 tsp
garlic powder
2 tsp
chicken base
2 c
heavy cream
1/2 c
sour cream
chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 box
tri color rotini pasta
2 c
monterey jack cheese, shredded
1/2 c
chives, sliced green onion tops
fresh tomato, diced

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350. Cook pasta and set aside. Cook chicken, dice and set aside. In a blender puree heavy cream, sour cream, garlic powder, chicken base and peppers.
In a skillet melt butter, add onion and green pepper and cook until tender. Add minced garlic and cook for a few more minutes. Now add chicken and sauce let simmer for about 5 mins. Season with salt if needed. (you can thicken sauce with a slurry of cornstarch and water, if desired.)
Add chicken and sauce to cooked pasta, mix well. Pour into a casserole dish and top with cheese. Bake until cheese is melted, about 20 mins. Remove from oven, garnish with diced tomatoes and chives.
