  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 16 oz jars alfredo sauce

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar or Colby Jack cheese, divided mix 1/2 cup in the recipe and then reserve 1/2 cup to sprinkle on top right before baking
  • 1 cup medium salsa
  • 1-2 Tbsp taco seasoning I used 2 and it was a little spicy so use less if desired

  • In a large skillet, cook onion, chicken, salt and pepper over medium heat until chicken is no longer pink.
  • Add the alfredo sauce and heat until boiling, then add the cheeses, salsa and taco seasoning.
  • Add the cooked pasta and then divide mixture between two greased 8-inch square pans. If you would like more cheese, add a sprinkle of cheddar or Colby Jack on top before covering the pans with foil.
  • Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
