I made this in huge amounts for my son's rehearsal dinner and everyone loved it. A relative of the bride told me it was the best thing he had ever eaten in his life! My family frequently requests this for dinner - it is so easy and so tasty. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

How To Make chicken & pasta con queso

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9 pan with a coating of nonstick spray.
  • 2
    Cook chicken, peppers and onion with salt, pepper, garlic powder and cumin according to your taste and cook on medium heat in a nonstick frying pan until the chicken is no longer pink but not overcooked. Remove from heat. Don't drain off any liquid.

    Add the remaining ingredients, mixing well and put in the 13 x 9 pan. Bake for 20 minutes. I save 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese to sprinkle on top. Freezes well - let thaw and bake for 30 minutes or until completely heated through.
