Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Slow Cooker Chicken Chile Pasta)

Hello again food fanatics and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. Today I bring you an amazing pasta dish that’s easy to make and is loaded with flavor. It’s not just the flavor that’s amazing either. The wonderful smell in your home as this slowly cooks is just as amazing. If you want to save a little time at the beginning of this recipe, shredding the chicken off a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken works wonderfully as well. Also, if you’re not a big fan of spicy food I recommend using regular diced tomatoes instead of the ones with the green chiles in them. Give this a try at your next pot luck dinner or family gathering and I’m certain you won’t have any leftovers to worry about later. As always, feel free to leave comments below and be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter, if you aren’t already, so you don’t miss a single new post.
