I finally got a chance to stock up on groceries this week and I decided to make some creamy chicken pasta with chipotle sauce for dinner the other evening. I have had cravings for Mexican food after my travels to Japan. And after all, October just happens to be Hispanic Heritage Month and I love the dishes that are a part of my heritage.
 

When I was a little girl, we ate a lot of Mexican food. My mom would make it nearly ever day and every Sunday dinner was spent at my grandma’s home. My grandmother would make all her ingredients from scratch and spent hours in the kitchen, but oh the Mexican meals were fantastic! We would enjoy an early dinner and then listen to her pianola. That was before cell phones, hand-held electronics and even the internet. How am I that old?

With my busy life today, I do not have the time to prepare all the chilis, masa and other ingredients that my grandmother made from scratch. So I look to helpful shortcuts such as canned chipotle sauce to streamline the cooking process, without sacrificing flavor. I used La Morena chipotle chilis in this recipe.

 
For this recipe, I used rigatoni pasta for this recipe, but many other pastas will work. The chipotle chili pasta is made with sweet peppers and chilies in adobo sauce with a nice creamy sauce that packs just the right amount of heat.

Well the peppers are sautéing, cut chicken into bite-size the bites. Once the peppers are sautéed, add the cooked chicken.

And heavy cream slowly to mixture and heat through.

Add 2 tablespoons of cilantro to mixture and blend. Serve over hot pasta. Garnish with a few cilantro leaves enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
