  • Summary

    *I did have about 1 1/2 cups of the chicken mixture leftover- we just wrapped it up in flour tortillas for lunch the next day and it was delicious! (I put one pan in the oven to bake for dinner and then wrapped the other uncooked pan with foil and threw it in the freezer for another night. When you are ready to eat it, pull it out of the freezer 24 hours in advance and let it thaw in the fridge. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes)

    Ingredients

    • 4 cups chicken breast, cooked and diced
    • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
    • 6 green onions, diced
    • 1 green pepper, diced
    • 1 red pepper, diced
    • 3 (8 oz.) blocks cream cheese, softened (not melted)
    • 2 (14 oz) cans diced tomatoes with chiles, undrained (Rotel or store brand)
    • 1/4 cup chicken broth
    • 1 tsp cumin
    • 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 2 cups salsa
    • 40 large pasta shells
