This Fiesta Chicken Pasta Salad is bursting with flavor. Tender pasta and chicken are mixed with taco seasoning, ranch dressing, corn, black beans and more. I let it chill in the fridge for about 4 hours and then served it at our 4th of July party. It was a big hit! I was hoping to bring home the leftovers, but there wasn’t any left!
This incredible Fiesta Chicken Pasta Salad is going to become your new favorite pasta salad. The only suggestion I make is to plan in advance because it does call for pre-cooked chicken. A rotisserie chicken would be perfect for this!
Also, I suggest doubling the recipe if you’re serving a large crowd. Every one is going to want in on this yummy dish!
