Chicken Rotel Spaghetti

Chicken Rotel Spaghetti is Southern Comfort Food from the Deep South.  It is easy to make and delicious to eat now and later!  Sometimes I get a craving for creamy, cheesy pasta and chicken.

This dish is a wonderful blend since you use thin spaghetti it keeps the texture light.  The tomatoes and green chilies add just the right kick without it being overwhelmingly spicy.  The Velveeta cheese makes it so creamy. And the best part is this yummy dish seems to get better day after day as the flavors blend.  That makes for some great lunches for the week.

See how easy it is to make one today.  Enjoy the ultimate comfort food, Chicken Rot-el Spaghetti, today!

      I usually use about 2 cups of shredded rotisserie chicken. You can use a little more or less and it works great. Thanks for asking!
