Chicken Fajita Pasta

As prepared by Macheesmo,

A nice fusion mix between classic Italian and Tex-Mex flavors. So delicious and cheesy and easy to make!

If there are two cuisines I’m most comfortable with, it’s Italian food and Tex-Mex food. The Italian food comes from my youth. I grew up with big pots of pasta always around the dinner table.

But now I live in a Tex-Mex family. My wife loves Tex-Mex flavors and we eat Tex-Mex stuff weekly. So, it just makes sense to try and mash the cuisines together and see what happens.

Fortunately, what happens is something delicious. It’s an easy recipe to make, but the flavors are big and it’ll be a hit for any weeknight dinner.

It’s such a delicious and fun recipe. I hope you give it a try!

Tips  

Keep a little pasta water after you drain your spaghetti. If your chicken fajita mix is looking too thick or dry, you can add a little pasta water to it to thin out the sauce.
