On my way to 100 recipes in 100 days. Here is recipe 95: Chicken and Green Chili Pasta
You all have seen the White Chicken Enchiladas. They are smothered in a green chili sour cream sauce. Oh momma homma!!
One of my lovely readers wrote me to tell me how she turned this in to a pasta dish. SO EASY!! Much faster to assemble than rolling the enchiladas and baking. This was great. And if I tell my girls we are having noodles for dinner, I am the world’s best mom.
