In all honesty, how hard is it for you to get dinner on the table? If you’re anything like me, its probably one of the biggest challenges of the day. Many of you are just getting home from work, or just getting your kids home from school, and once you walk into the kitchen you face that ever daunting question, “What am I going to make for dinner?”
A while back, I distinctly remember listening to a radio show, where they had an expert in meal planning talking about the best way to tackle the haunting question of what to make for dinner. I remember her saying that if you find yourself in the middle of the grocery store at 5pm wandering through the aisles trying to find ideas, you’ve already lost the battle. She then said that having specific, go-to recipes that you and your family enjoy, and having those ingredients consistently on-hand is one of the best ways to beat the dinner battle.
This recipe for Loaded Chicken Enchilada Pasta is without a doubt, one of my go-to recipes. I consistently stock all the ingredients in my pantry and freezer, and its something that my family and I really enjoy! Even my 5-year-old will gobble it up. To keep it kid-friendly, I don’t add too much spice, although you can always increase the spices to give it a bit more heat. For additional convenience, I often use rotisserie chicken, which helps cut down on the cooking time, and helps get the meal on the table in about 30 minutes. Not bad for a hot, delicious meal that everyone will enjoy!
This dish is fantastic will all of your favorite tex-mex flavors. I like to top my pasta with sour cream, guacamole, Mexican blend shredded cheese, and some sliced green onions. My husband loves him some sliced jalapenos, salsa and some hot sauce to bring the heat! Any way you have it, this dish is sure to be a great stand-by when you find yourself asking, “What should I make for dinner?”
