Creamy Jalapeno Popper Chicken Pasta

Happy Sunday! This morning as I was sipping my morning coffee I was also trying to think of what snack to serve while watching today's football games. My husband absolutely loves Jalapeno Popper Dip but instead of serving it as a snack I decided to re-create it and turn it into dinner. I am so glad I did. Creamy, spicy, deliciousness!

Creamy Jalapeno Popper Chicken Pasta
Makes 8 Cups
Cal 242, Carbs 34.6, Fat 5.1, Fiber 4.6, Protein 17.7

3 cups cooked and chopped chicken breast
12 oz. short pasta (I used Barilla High Fiber Shells)
2 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup cooked and crumbled bacon or bacon bits
2 jalapenos, seeded and diced
1.25 cups plain non fat yogurt

Cook pasta to al dente. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile in a large sauce pan whisk together cream cheese and yogurt. Once smooth add in shredded cheddar cheese. Stir in jalapeno peppers, bacon, and chicken.

Pour mixture over hot pasta. Stir and enjoy!
