Chicken Fajita Pasta is a healthy and quick family meal made delicious using a Kraft Recipe Makers meal kit!  

After a long day of  juggling two kids, their activities, naps (or no naps), the big question is ‘what’s for dinner tonight?’  While we often have big ideas of recipes to try, what we really end up needing is a quick, easy meal.  We want something healthy too.  This Chicken Fajita Pasta is just that – healthy, easy and delicious!  It is made with fresh chicken, vegetables, cheese and a delicious sauce, which is actually my new secret weapon.  This little secret of mine is Kraft Recipe Makers!

What I love about Kraft Recipe Makers meal kits is that a lot of the dinner prep work is already done.  Each meal kit comes with two ready-made sauces, while still allowing a lot of room for creativity with a recipe.   The box has several recipes to get your started, such as Tex-Mex Scramble and Beefy Burrito, offering a great variety of ideas with just one kit.  I wanted to come up with my own recipe – Chicken Fajita Pasta.  I used the Tex-Mex Chicken Fajita meal kit, which contains two sauces:  Zesty Lime Fajita Simmer Sauce and a Chipotle and Tomato Salsa.   The simmer sauce is used to cook the chicken and vegetables, and then add the salsa once everything is cooked and mixed together.

Let me show you how simple it is to make Chicken Fajita Pasta using Kraft Recipe Makers in just 5 easy steps:
