Chicken Enchilada with Shell Pasta is a very simple merging of Tex-Mex and Italian style ingredients. This is a really simple, easy to make meal that requires simple preparation and not too many steps to make.
The chicken, tomato & pasta are a typical great combination. Add in black beans, corn and spring onion, and lightly spice with chilli to provide a wonderful subtle heated undertone to the meal. Mixed with Enchilada sauce as well as cheese and you have an amazing meal that will not disappoint.
I use an entire rotisserie chicken for this meal, so you will create a substantial meal with enough for 6 people. The entire chicken produces around 5 cups or so of chicken to be added. You can always add less to change the mix to your preference.
Optionally serve with sour cream to provide an additional flavour offset into the mix.
This dish is all cooked in one pan, so it couldn’t be easier to make a great weeknight meal that will become a favourite on regular rotation in your home menu.
