Description

Easy casserole for weeknight dinners. Filling with exciting flavors and a little heat, plus it’s a great way to use leftover chicken.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Uncooked Pasta (I Use Small Shapes)
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Jalapeno Pepper, Seeded And Finely Diced
  • 1 can (14 Oz. Size) Petite Diced Tomatoes, Drained
  • 3 cups Cooked Chicken (leftovers Work Perfectly)
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Size) Black Beans, Drained And Rinsed
  • 1 can (6 Oz. Size) Tomato Paste
  • 6 ounces, fluid Water
  • 2-½ cups Shredded Mexican-blend Cheese, Divided
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt, Or To Taste

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Lightly grease a 9×13 pan, set aside. Cook pasta according to package directions.
2. Heat olive oil in a large pot (big enough to fit all of this in there eventually) over medium high heat. Add jalapeno and cook about 2 minutes. Add in diced tomatoes, chicken, black beans, tomato paste and water. Season with salt. Cook about 5 minutes. Stir in cooked pasta and 1 cup of the shredded cheese until everything is well blended (think about it like this, “I want a little bit of everything in every bite”). Pour into the prepared 9×13 pan.
3. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Remove pan from oven, top with remaining 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese. Bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

Very good and easy to make. I used ground beef and added onion and green bell pepper. Will make again! Thanks for sharing!

I thought this dish turned out very good! I added onion and only had Stewed tomatoes. I liked the fact that you don’t need rice with it.

This was a make ahead meal for us (made on Sun but baked during the week) and although it is good it seemed, for my family, to lack something. My kids loved it with some homemade salsa we had. I enjoyed it both with and without the salsa. Don’t know why I never thought to put black beans in a pasta bake.
