Ingredients

  • 4
    cups water
  • 1
    jar (15 oz) Alfredo pasta sauce
  • 1
    can (15.25 oz) whole kernel sweet corn, drained
  • 1
    can (15 oz) Progresso™ black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1
    package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ original taco seasoning mix

    lb uncooked rotini pasta
  • 3
    cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 2
    cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (8 oz)
  • Diced tomato, sliced green onions and chopped fresh cilantro leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In 5-quart Dutch oven, mix water, Alfredo sauce, corn, beans and taco seasoning mix. Heat to boiling over high heat. Stir in pasta; return to boiling. Reduce heat to simmering; cook 12 to 14 minutes, stirring frequently, until pasta is tender and sauce is reduced and thickened.
  • 2
    Stir in chicken; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat; stir in cheese until melted. Top with remaining ingredients.

  • For an extra layer of flavor, serve with Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa.
  • It’s important to use the type of pasta called for in one-pot recipes that cook the pasta in the sauce. Different shapes cook for different lengths of time and require different amounts of liquid.
