Chicken Fajita Pasta

Chicken Fajita Pasta
Chicken fajitas are one of my favourite meals and I often like to use the same flavours in a hearty and tasty chicken fajita pasta. This pasta starts out with some chicken that is tossed in taco seasoning (I like homemade for tons of flavour) followed by plenty of onions and peppers! Once the chicken and veggies are ready there is some broth to form the base of the sauce along with some diced tomatoes (fire roasted are great here) and I like to add some sour cream to things nice and creamy. All that's left is to mix in the pasta and serve topped with your favourite chicken fajita fillings like cheese and sour cream!

I made this tonight after getting home from work; we had some grilled chicken from last night, so my prep was very easy. IT IS GREAT! Thank you, Kevin.
