HOW TO MAKE ONE POT CHICKEN QUESADILLA PASTA
Our one pot chicken quesadilla pasta is so easy to prepare! That's right!
In a medium to large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat and sweat the onion for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Increase the heat to medium-high and add the chunks of chicken, the taco seasoning, salt and pepper.
Mix well until combined and let brown for about 5 minutes, stirring every now and then.
Stir in the water and salsa. Add the pasta and let boil for about 10-12 minutes or until cooked.
Add the cheese and crema and stir until cheese is melted and crema is combined. Turn off the heat and toss the jalapeño, tomatoes, and cilantro.
Place avocado chunks on top and squeeze the lime over it. If desired, sprinkle oregano and red pepper flakes.
Serve and enjoy!
As one might expect, my family and I ate and ate... and ate this pasta. It is already on our must-repeat list!
It is exactly what I needed after a full day of work, but with dinner still yet to prepare for a really hungry family.

This sounds so interesting! We love Old El Paso salsa an always have on on the pantry, looking for ways to use it. You just gave us another delicious road to follow!:) We'd love to cook this as soon as we get some sour cream, which is a bit rare in Greece. But we have found where it is sold (yay!) so now we can make recipes like this:)
Sending you our love from the north of Athens, where we are buried deep in the snow today:)

Thanks friends! Lately I have replaced sour cream for Greek yogurt (plain). It works well too. I hope you make this and enjoy.
Another cold, windy day makes this flavorful pasta recipe so appealing! The garnishes elevate dinner to fabulous.
