One Pot Chicken Enchilada Pasta // Do you ever get tired of making a mess of the kitchen while trying to feed your family? If so, this one pot meal is perfect for you! A great Mexican dish without all of the fuss! | Tried and TastyAlright, I don’t know about you, but I’m a tornado when it comes to cooking in the kitchen. In a major way. I think it’s because I don’t have a lot of space, so I just kind of explode everywhere. It can be problematic (just ask my husband, that sweet soul usually ends up cleaning up after me). If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen last month when I was sent this beautiful Stainless Steel Pro 5 Qt Casserole Cookware + Cover. Helllooooo swoon-worthy! I couldn’t wait to whip up this delicious one pot meal. You know.. to cut down on dishes.

I’ve been a fan of OXO for years now. My favorites you ask? Hmm.. I have almost too many to list, but if I had to pick my very favorites I’d say for sure the OXO Good Grips scraper & chopper, OXO Good Grips Butter Dish (random I know, but I love me some butter), and for sure the OXO Good Grips Sink Caddy. All of which are less than $20! SCORE! But back to the reason we are here: to make your life easier with this one pot meal! Hello! One pot? Yes please! You can just imagine my husband rejoicing right about now. Take a look at how easy this is to whip together. If you’ve never heard of Goldbaums Brown Rice Pasta you must get your hands on it immediately. It’s SUPER healthy, crazy delicious AND gluten free. Can I get another: SCORE?!
