Spicy Chicken Enchilada Skillet

This is another one of my no-boil pasta skillets. I love the ease of preparation of these dishes. Chicken Legs loves the ease of clean up with these dishes. Only one!  YAY!

This Spicy Chicken Enchilada Skillet is awesome! OMG! So yummy! I wolfed down my serving, and I was sad that I didn't have room for a second helping. I ate this for lunch the next day and it was just as good. When you reheat it, add a little chicken broth to keep it from drying out.

I didn't think this dish was super spicy, but the heat will all depend on the type of salsa you use (I used Trader Joe's). If you are worried about the heat, use a mild salsa or substitute some diced tomatoes for the salsa.

Spicy Chicken Enchilada Pasta
serves 6
(Printable Recipe)

  • 1 lb boneless chicken, cut into small bite-sized pieces
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp dried minced onion flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 jar (12oz) enchilada sauce
  • 1 (15oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 oz campanelle pasta (or penne)
  • 1 cup Pepper Jack cheese, shredded
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley or cilantro
Heat olive oil over medium hight heat in a 12-inch oven safe skillet until hot. Add chicken and cook until browned. (It doesn't need to be completely cooked because it will continue to cook with the pasta)

Add onion flakes, garlic powder, enchilada sauce, black beans, broth, salsa, cream, and pasta. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover skillet. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, until pasta is tender.

Remove skillet from heat. Top with cheese and sprinkle with parsley or cilantro. Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly.

  1. YES! I love one skillet/one pot dishes! This looks like it would be a hit here!

  2. This looks yummy! I love skillet dinners. I can't wait to try it.

  3. Looks delicious Steph and I especially like just one pan to clean.

  4. This sounds fab and love that it only uses on skillet! Less dishes always makes me happy!

  5. Made it today. Super yummy and easy. I used black bean and corn salsa from Kroger and cheddar jack cheese. Loved it.

  6. Yes, hubby and I both loved it! Used ground beef instead of chicken since that's what I had on hand. Very yummy!

  7. That is just perfect for the smoked pulled chicken that I have in the freezer plus it is so quick I can make it after football practice.

  8. Dpes the pasta have to be cooked before hand or do i add it to the recipe uncooked?
