It only takes a few ingredients and less than 30 minutes to make this Cheesy Taco Pasta!

I used boneless, skinless chicken breast instead of using ground beef. That saved a ton of points!

To save time I bought a rotisserie chicken that was already cooked. I love recipes when I can do that.

This is all you need to make this recipe:

  • Cooked chicken breast
  • Salsa
  • Taco seasoning
  • Reduced-fat Mexican cheese, shredded
  • Pasta (I used rotini)

That’s it! I also like to add cilantro and sour cream, but that’s optional.

The recipe makes 8 (1 cup) servings. It’s 4 points per serving for blue and purple, 5 points per serving for green.

Even if you want to have two servings it’s only 8 points for blue and purple, 10 points for green. That’s not bad for a filling dinner.

This Cheesy Taco Pasta is ready in less than 30 minutes! I started by cooking the noodles.

While those were cooking I started shredding the chicken breast.

Once the noodles were draining I added taco seasoning and water to the empty noodle pan.

I mixed that up then added the chicken to the pan. I gave it a good stir, then added the salsa.

Next I added the noodles back to the pan. I kept the heat on low, then added the cheese.

Once the cheese was melted it was ready to eat!
