My husband and I absolutely LOVE enchiladas. That was the first dish I made as a married couple and I’ve made them hundreds of time since. While my kids are still not so sure about them, they absolutely loved this enchilada pasta. My daughter even asked for seconds the last time I made it. I was shocked! That may have been a parenting win. I’ll take one wherever I can get it ;)

This pasta is the perfect meal to make on busy weeknights, when you need something quick. It uses ingredients you probably already have in the pantry and is made using only ONE pot, just like my burrito bowls. Less dishes are always a good thing, right?!

  • 1 (4.5 ounces) 4.5-ounce can chopped green chiles
  • 2 (10 ounces) 10-ounce can red enchilada sauce
  • 1 (14.5 ounces) 14.5-ounce can chicken broth

Stir in enchilada sauce and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Then stir in the noodles and bring the heat to low. Stir and then cover. Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the noodles are cooked.
