Ricci Alexis: Queso Chicken Pasta

A couple years ago I was flying to a blog conference in Dallas and grabbed a bite to eat in the airport before I left and had the most amazing Queso Chicken Pasta of my life. Who knew some queso and chicken would taste so good over pasta??

When I got home from that conference I decided to try to make it myself and it turned out to be super simple and super delicious! I have tried several variations of the recipe over the year but this is one I keep going back to, the simple one!

You literally just boil your pasta, boil your chicken, and make some two-ingredient queso and mix it all together. In the past I have added garlic, bell peppers and onions, Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup, milk and some other things but so far the four ingredient recipe I am sharing with you today is my favorite!!

I am a huge fan of any and all Mexican food but sometimes I get tired of the same ole tacos, burritos, nachos, etc and I think this pasta is a yummy shift from traditional Mexican recipes. Plus it’s pasta so it’s a total comfort food. I haven’t tried it before but I bet it would be good with taco meat as well. I mean anything is good with queso, right?
