Things To Grab

  • Large skillet with lid

  2. Stir in pasta, enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, salsa, and chicken broth. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes or until pasta is al dente, stirring once halfway through.

  3. Add corn, black beans, and bell and poblano peppers. Gently toss to combine. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese; cook for 1 to 2 minutes more or until cheese is melted.

  4. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Garnish with sour cream, cilantro, tomato, avocado, and/or tortilla strips. Serve immediately.
