This Chicken Fajita Bow Tie Pasta Salad was AMAZING! It is packed full of great flavor and is super easy to make. You can even make this ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to serve. If you do make this ahead of time, don't add the Doritos until you are ready to serve. The chips will get soggy and nobody wants to eat soggy Doritos!

We ate this Chicken Fajita Bow Tie Pasta Salad for lunch and dinner on the same day. It was that good!! To cut down on the prep time, I used rotisserie chicken in this recipe. It is my number one shortcut in the kitchen. I prefer the rotisserie chickens from Costco - they are seasoned perfectly, big and cheap!

The dressing on this Chicken Fajita Bow Tie Pasta Salad was really delicious! Lime juice, cumin, chili powder, cilantro, salsa and olive oil. If you don't like cilantro, you can leave it out or substitute fresh parsley. This Chicken Fajita Bow Tie Pasta Salad would be great for summer potlucks! You could even make it without the chicken and serve it as a side dish.

  1. What type and brand of salsa did you use? This sounds so good.
