What happens when you have a bowl of leftover pasta and about half the ingredients a recipe calls for? This does!
We ate this scrumptious salad hot the night I made it, and then cold the next night – easy, frugal, and delicious! My big ‘Oops’ was grabbing a can of what I thought was corn at the grocery. It turned out to be Golden Hominy. In my defense, it did have a picture of an ear of corn on the label. And I was having a really bad pain day when I went grocery shopping. But by the time I realized my mistake I had already cooked the chicken, and it was too late to thaw anything else.
2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1/2 box pasta of your choice, cooked and drained
1/2 cup salsa
1 can chopped tomatoes with green chilies, drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 can golden hominy, drained
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup sour cream
Combine and serve hot or cold. Makes eight main-course servings.
I think this is going to be my go-to potluck dish this summer!
