This is a quick dish, for some of that shredded chicken in the freezer.
My kids love taco anything, so this works for a quick fix after a day in the garden!
Taco Chicken Mac
4 cups cooked pasta,cooked with one large diced onion
1 1/2 cups cooked beans (pinto, canned chili beans, whatever is on hand, even black beans)
1 small can green chilis
1lb shredded chicken
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup ketchup or tomato sauce
taco seasoning (use one pack or equivalent of homemade or bulk mix)
shredded cheese (opt)
Bring the 1/2 cup water to a simmer and toss in the chicken and taco seasoning. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes and add the ketchup, chilis, cooked pasta, and beans. Heat to a simmer. (Add more liquid if necessary.)
Serve topped with cheese if desired.
Chicken was bought on sale at .99lb as split chicken breasts. Cooked in bulk and frozen.
Ketchup and sauce are bought in bulk as well.
Chilis were bought at a discount store.
Pasta was whole grain, bought in the clearance bin in a bulk ziploc bag.
This dish was made for less than $2.
