  • 4 Ounces Dry Pasta (fettuccine, linguine or spaghetti)
  • 1/2 Lb. Chicken Breast
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning (or to taste, for the chicken)
  • 4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 4 Teaspoons All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Chipotle Paste
  • Salt to Taste
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Chipotle Powder
  • 1 Cup Half and Half
  • 2 Ounces Pepper Jack cheese (shredded)


  • Cook pasta until al dente, drain, and set aside (or per the box instructions).
  • Season chicken and grill until cooked completely (about 6-7 minutes each side depending on thickness).
  • In a large skillet melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk to combine. Cook for 2-3 minutes to allow any raw flour flavor to cook out.
  • Add the chipotle paste, chipotle powder, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  • Carefully add the half and half and heat until the mixture begins to steam but not boil.
  • Add the pepper jack cheese a little at a time while whisking. Make sure the cheese melts completely and continue to heat until warm but not boiling. Add more salt to taste.
  • Toss the cooked pasta in the chipotle sauce to coat and place the pasta on plates and top with sliced chicken.
