  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add peppers and red onions; cook 4 min. or until crisp-tender. Add chicken, beans and taco seasoning; cook 3 min., stirring frequently. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Spoon into pasta shells, adding about 1 heaping Tbsp. to each.
  • Mix pasta sauce and salsa; spread half onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Add shells; top with remaining sauce. Cover.
  • Bake 25 min. or until heated through. Top with remaining cheese; bake, uncovered, 5 to 10 min. or until melted. Top with green onions.


This is a great way to use leftover cooked chicken.

    I made a double version of this recipe - half for friends coming over for dinner, and half to take to a pot luck the next day. It was a bit time consuming stuffing the shells, but not difficult, and it was nice to make something a little different than a casserole that was just pasta with red sauce. I could have spiced it up a bit more, but it was still tasty, and a hit with the kids. I've already been asked to make it again!

    Everyone loved this dish, and can't wait to have it again. As much as this recipe makes, everyone wanted more. I fed 5 people (2 of which were big guys).

    I cannot explain it but I made this dish and it tasted really bland. Normally I love kraft recipes so I was really disappointed, perhaps I should have used super spicy salsa to improve it?
