Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Get out a large skillet with deep sides and heat the Olive Oil (1 dash) in it over medium high heat. Brown the Tyson® Chicken Breasts (1 lb) in it until it is cooked through.
Step 2
Add the Red Bell Pepper (1) , Green Bell Pepper (1) , and Onion (1) . Let them become soft and fragrant for another 2 minutes or so.
Step 3
While that all cooks, season everything with 1 teaspoon of the Taco Seasoning (1 tsp) , Garlic Powder (1/2 tsp) , Salt (1 pinch) and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch) .
Step 4
Pour in the juice from the Lime (1) as well. Let the whole mixture simmer together in the lime juice for another 2-3 minutes, then remove it to a plate and set it aside.
Step 5
Add the Butter (1/3 cup) and All-Purpose Flour (1/3 cup) to the same pan and whisk them together thoroughly until it becomes a thick, golden mixture.
Step 6
Slowly pour in the Milk (3 cups) while you keep whisking, then add the remaining Taco Seasoning (1/2 tsp) and Dijon Mustard (1 tsp) . Turn the heat down to medium and let the sauce simmer for 6-8 minutes, whisking it often. It should become thick and luscious.
Step 7
In the meantime, get a pot of water on and bring it to a boil for the Medium Pasta Shells (1 lb) . Cook it until tender for about 7-8 minutes. Drain it and set it aside for just a minute. The sauce should be done at this point.
Step 8
Whisk in the Cheddar Cheese (1 1/2 cups) and Smoked Gouda (1 cup) until it is a smooth, gorgeous and cheesy sauce.
Step 9
Stir the chicken, pepper and onion mixture back in too. Finally, stir the pasta in thoroughly to get coated in the cheese sauce. Scoop it into bowls and serve immediately!
