This Tex-Mex play on a classic chicken pasta recipe is phenomenal. The addition of Seasonest Adobo seasoning transforms a regular red sauce into one serving authentic south of the border flavor. The smokiness of chipotle peppers come through nicely and complements the paprika, garlic, onion and other tasty additions of the beautifully complex blend quite well.
