Making Tuesday Tasty-Chipotle Pasta Salad

I created an interesting salad the other day and it was so tasty that I thought I would write down what I made/what would have been super yummy in it. I am giving round about measurements because I think people should make things to taste. Some people like more cheese, tomato, adding corn etc. Have fun creating your own salad with this base recipe!

8 oz of elbow macaroni cooked
1/2 to 1 C of Kraft Chipotle mayonnaise
1 small can of mild green chilies
1/2 to 1 can of black beans rinsed
1 chicken breast cooked or 1 C of shredded chicken any form(I used rotisserie chicken dark/light meat)
1/4 of a red onion
6 to 8 oz of shredded cheese(I used Mexican blend but, you can use whatever)
1 tomato chopped if you like tomato


Boil elbow macaroni to al dente and rinse. Put into a bowl and add each of your ingredients except for the mayo. Blend well. Add 1/2 C of the mayo and stir in. Taste and if it's too dry continue to add mayo until it is the consistency that you want.

*I was not paid to reference this brand, it's what I found was tasty and used in the salad!*
