Ingredients

  • 16 ounces spaghetti
  • 1 (10 oz) can Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies
  • 2 (10.5 oz) cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • 8 ounces Velveeta Original cubed
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 lb chicken breast seasoned, cooked, and shredded

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Break spaghetti in half and boil until al dente, according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • In the large pot, heat the Rotel, cream of mushroom soup, 1 cup shredded cheddar, Velveeta, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt on medium-high until the cheese melts, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in the shredded cooked chicken breast and cooked spaghetti noodles a little bit at a time.
  • Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish. Top with the remaining cheddar cheese. Bake for 25–30 minutes or until heated through.

Notes

If your shredded chicken is cooked from scratch, be sure to season it with salt and pepper.
If you use rotisserie chicken, you may not wish to season the chicken. When stirring in the shredded chicken and cooked spaghetti, mix them in small amounts to make it easier to coat the chicken and noodles.
Store in the fridge for 3-4 days.
To make ahead, stop after you sprinkle the shredded cheddar on top. Cover tightly and store in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Follow the baking step when ready to serve.
To freeze, stop after you sprinkle the shredded cheddar on top. Wrap tightly and freeze for up to 4 months. Defrost for 24 hours before baking.
