Have you ever been to the Pick Palate blog? I found it through Meredith when she posted about making this dish. After I made this delicious pasta (that Jenny created) I had to explore her site. She is an amazing cook who comes up with wonderful family recipes and many scrumptious desserts. Since making this dish, I have made several of her recipes (can not wait to make this!) and will be putting them on here. I make so many that I will add a Picky Palate category to my blog. Thanks Meredith for introducing me to Jenny's blog. As always I made changes to the recipe to fit my family, go here to see the original recipe.
1 box Farfalle pasta
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
½ Cup finely chopped shallot
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped, from can
1 fresh corn on the cob, kernels removed
1 Cup drained black beans
2 Cups diced cooked chicken (often I use rotisserie)
1/2 Cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped (we love cilantro!)
2 14 oz cans Muir Glen Fire Roasted diced Tomatoes
½ Cup half & half
Pinch garlic salt
Place both cans of tomatoes into food processor and pulse until smooth. Prepare pasta according to package directions, drain and set aside. Heat 2 Tablespoons olive oil into large skillet over medium heat. Add shallot, chipotle, corn, and beans. Cook for 5 minutes, until softened. Stir in cooked chicken and cilantro leaves until heated through, reduce heat to low. Pour tomato puree into chicken mixture. Stir in cooked pasta; stir to combine. Stir in heavy cream, salt, pepper and garlic salt to taste. Cook until heated through and serve. Top with additional lots of cilantro.
