Southwest Chicken Alfredo – Easy, creamy and delicious pasta dish with spicy chicken, vegetables, homemade alfredo sauce and cavatappi pasta.
So dreamy, so creamy, sooooo delicious! I ♥ my Mexitalian fusions!
Oh, heeeeey, friends! Happy Sunday! Welcome to my allthethings pasta/chicken sanctuary. Err. Blog.
I had an email the other day from a reader asking me to STOP butchering “their” Italian cuisine, referring to my Mediterranean White Chicken Enchiladas.
Normally, I wouldn’t bring this up because then you and I would have something/someone to gossip about every.single.day, however, this one is an exception.
An exception because, a) since when is Italy the only thing that is Mediterranean?
Geography 101: The countries with coastlines on the Mediterranean Sea include; Albania, Algeria, Bosnia, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Lebanon, Libya, Malta, Morocco, Monaco, Montenegro, Northern Cyprus, Palestinian territories, Slovenia, Spain, Syria, Turkey, and Tunisia.
AND, b) Imagine what would have been if Picasso went along with the norm and continued to just draw stick-people.
Thus, today we’re talking about pasta and cumin and chili powder and bell peppers and other yummy stuffs. Food for the heart and soul.
This whole thing was like a delicious fusion of all the things this family of 4 loves. From the cavatappi pasta to the southwestern flavors, this recipe represents!
I also found out that this is very good for the truly hungry-hungry. Like, the hangry hungry. <— Me, every day.
It gave my hungry self a feel-good hug at the end of a long, exhausting day full of me taking care of two little girls and their stomach bugs. Grrrrr! GO AWAY WINTER!
But, for reals. I just love this Southwest Chicken Alfredo combo. It’s colorful, it’s loaded with flavor, it’s creamy, it’s full of texture and there’s avocado on top. I mean. What more do you need?!
Have a Happy Sunday!!
