Did you know there were only 50 days until Christmas? This is my favorite time of year but also my busiest too. There are goodies to bake, Christmas chopping to start (yes, I’m one that gets a head start but it never seems to help as I’m still finishing up at the last minute), parties to hold and attend and, of course, keeping up with some great recipes for y’all to make to help make your seasons brighter.

So that’s why I’m bringing you an easy dinner dish, much like our Chicken & Tortellini Skillet and Seafood Stew, that can be on your table in 30 minutes. There’s not much fuss to it at all! It starts with a rotisserie chicken and uses easily found canned and packaged items. And, even better, it’s got all your favorite Mexican flavors and a touch of Italian with some fun spiral pasta. Bonus, it tastes great the night you make it and for next day’s hot lunches too.

I love to serve it with a side of fresh sliced avocado, ’cause avocado is good with everything! You can also top it with sour cream and fresh salsa too.
