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

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9 pan with a coating of nonstick spray.
  • 2Cook 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.
  • 3Add 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.
