Chicken Santa Fe Mac and Cheese

Yummmm........could anything be better than a good mac and cheese dish? Not here in my house! This Chicken Santa Fe Mac and Cheese combines all my favorite ingredients from my original crock pot recipe but in a mac and cheese. A fun twist on a classic and it was a hit!

Chicken Santa Fe Mac and Cheese
Serves 8
Cal 271 Carbs 36.7 Fat 6 Fiber 4.5, Protein !7.8

12 oz. elbow macaroni cooked al dente (I used Ronzoni)
2 cups cooked and chopped chicken breast
2 tbsp. hot sauce
1 cup creamed corn
1 can rotel, drained
1/2 cup black beans
1/2 cup low fat sour cream
1.25 cups reduced fat shredded cheddar jack cheese
salt to taste

In a large sauce pan over low heat combine creamed corn and sour cream. Stir until well blended, reduce heat to a simmer. Slowly stir in half the shredded cheese and hot sauce. Once melted add in the remaining ingredients.

Transfer to a lightly greased baking dish and top with remaining shredded cheese.

Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is cooked through. Enjoy!
