Mexican Spiced Chicken over Southwestern Corn Pasta

The other day at the farmers market in Winston Salem I got some handmade pasta from Red Barn Pastas in High Point, she was the sweetest lady and sells it on etsy. I got the Southwestern Corn pasta infused with cilantro and chili. I decided to use Mexican fajita seasoning with chicken and vegetables to serve with it for a kind of Tex Mex dish. But I am no expert, overall it was very tasty.


  • one small pack of the Southwestern corn pasta
  • one small pack of all natural chicken
  • 4 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 1/2 a red onion shopped
  • 1/2 a green pepper chopped
  • 4 small chopped tomatoes 
  • one pack of Mexican fajita seasoning (I need girlichefs help on this type of cuisine!)
  • a handful of frozen peas
  • one small broccoli crown chopped

  1. heat some olive oil and saute the onion, garlic and chicken for 5 minutes 
  2. then add the spices, and all the vegetables stir fry for another 5-10 minutes 
  3. add the tomatoes and let it reduce down for a sauce
  4. serve over the pasta and enjoy
I would love to learn more Southwestern dishes if you have some, please link below

Have a lovely weekend Everyone
