SOUTHWESTERN CHICKEN PASTA SALAD

It could not get easier than this Southwestern Chicken Pasta Salad.  This summer I focused on extremely quick, easy, and delicious pasta salad recipes my entire family would enjoy.  It includes baked Southwestern seasoned chicken breasts, crunchy bacon, pasta spirals, a fresh tomato,  grated Mexican blend cheeses, and a combination of Ranch dressing and salsa for the dressing.  Since I wanted to blog about all my favorite Pasta Salad recipes, we have eaten at least one or two different Pasta Salads per week.  Each time we ate a pasta salad, I asked my family which one they enjoyed the best.  Every family member has a different favorite pasta salad, but they all truly enjoy each one.

  1. Hi Diane, just saw this recipe for Easy Pasta Salad Southwestern Chicken, and it looks delicious, can’t wait to try it. I do have a couple of questions, 1) It calls for Wacky Mac Veggie Spiral Pasta, but then right below it has tomato. Then on down in the ingredients it calls for 1 chopped tomato, a little confused. 🙂 ? 2) Can you use a different pasta or will it change the taste? Thanks for any help. 🙂
