  • 1
    In large colander, rinse and drain uncooked pasta. In 4-quart saucepan, mix pasta, tomatoes, enchilada sauce, water, green onion whites and chili powder. Heat to boiling over high heat; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 14 to 16 minutes, stirring frequently, until pasta is tender; do not drain.
  • 2
    Stir in beans, corn and chicken; return to simmering. Cook 2 minutes longer to combine flavors. Remove from heat; stir in cheese.
  • 3
    Top with green onion greens. Serve with cilantro, lime wedges and sour cream.

Expert Tips

  • Rinsing the dry pasta removes extra starch from the shells, which keeps this one-pot wonder from becoming too thick during cooking.
  • Like it hot? Swap medium enchilada sauce for the mild, or substitute pepper Jack for the Cheddar cheese.
