Mexican Chicken Alfredo

May 14, 2013



As this is written..I pondered.  Yes, pondered.  (I do that sometimes.)  Why didn't this get posted before Cinco De Mayo? Why? It would of been ideal.  But, alas, it didn't.  It will have to be a great mystery of life. 

Kinda like..why does my husband, a man with 4 college degrees, put leftover mashed potatoes in a container that is  boldly marked "for onion only"? Or why can my 6 year old son count to 30 in Spanish in record time, but, can't remember what cabinet bath towels are located (there is only one!)?  Or why I continually take my 3 year old for walks, knowing that I will most likely have to carry him for the last block?  A mystery.

But, hey, we have chicken today. with cheese. and a Mexican flair.

Something different for me. (note: sarcasm) OK, are you sick of my chicken recipes yet?  I hope not. We simply looovvee chicken and some of it I just have to share with you all.Like this recipe..Alfredo sauce, salsa, cheese? Now, come on! What's not to love? Actually , you could do this without the chicken.  It was just as yummy with just the pasta.  The sauce has a great creamy texture, plus, the Alfredo and salsa are a great combination. A side salad and you have yourself a nice, quick, tasty dinner.

Don't worry..no chicken again for a while..OK..next week.  It's another great one..I swear!!
