My husband would eat macc & cheese every day if I would make it. So to compromise, I just make one pot meals based around macc & cheese with different flavors. This one I season the chicken like I would taco meat & add the tomatoes & chiles. Makes him happy!

How to Make SPICY CHICKEN PASTA

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut chicken into bite size cubes. Add seasonings & oil to chicken & mix well to coat.
  2. Put on pasta to cook according to package.
  3. Saute chicken in a large skillet until no longer pink. Drain.
  4. Put velveeta & tomatoes in a bowl, & microwave until cheese is melted. Stir well to combine.
  5. Cobine chicken, pasta & cheese sauce. Allow to sit covered for approx. 10 minues for cheese to stick to pasta.
