Mexican Chicken Alfredo

Love chicken alfredo and the addition of salsa and taco seasoning sounds awesome for a different twist on my regular recipe.

When I make chicken alfredo the fast way, it is similar to this recipe . . . except I add a combination of bell pepper and spicy hot peppers.  I also use green onions including green part instead of plain onions.  Of course I add garlic.  I like to use no fat half and half if I have it in the fridge.

This recipe comes from Taste of Home . . . one of my favorite recipe sources from the time was a young adult and have a collection of their yearly cookbooks.  If you love cookbooks, you need to check it out on their website.


    • 1 package (16 ounces) gemelli or spiral pasta
    • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 2 jars (15 ounces each) Alfredo sauce
    • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 cup medium salsa
    • 1/4 cup 2% milk
    • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning


Preheat oven to 350°. Cook pasta according to package directions.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken, onion, salt and pepper in oil until chicken is no longer pink. Stir in Alfredo sauce; bring to a boil. Stir in cheese, salsa, milk and taco seasoning.

Drain pasta; toss with chicken mixture. 

Divide between two greased 8-in.-square baking dishes. 

Cover and bake 30-35 minutes or until bubbly.

Yield: 2 casseroles (4 servings each)
