Southwest Chicken Spaghetti: With Kraft FreshTake

As a busy mom the last thing I want to do at the end of the day is cook dinner.   One of my go to dishes has always been chicken spaghetti.  At our wedding shower 13 years ago everyone brought their favorite recipe to share with the bride.  Someone slipped that chicken spaghetti recipe in there, and I’ve used it ever since!  Over the years I’ve played around with the recipe and made different versions of it.  Chicken spaghetti is great because it’s a casserole dish & you can put whatever you want in there.  When we have friends & family over it’s a great dish to cook for a group because it’s easy and they all love it.

I made southwest chicken spaghetti last night for supper using Kraft Fresh Take Southwest 3-Cheese.   Kraft #FreshTake comes in several different varieties including: Italian Parmesan, Cheddar Jack w/ Bacon, & Southwest 3-Cheese. If you’re planning an Easter meal this year consider using Kraft Fresh Takes to jazz up your traditional recipes.

  • Italian Parmesan -Great seasoning for some Easter egg-shaped meatballs
  • Cheddar Jack w/Bacon – Use to season twice baked potatoes
  • Southwest 3-Cheese- Whip up the Southwest Chicken Spaghetti casserole I’m about to share with you!

1 can Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Kraft Fresh Take Southwest 3-Cheese blend
8-10 Ritz crackers


HEAT oven to 350ºF.
COOK spaghetti
MEANWHILE, cook chicken or debone a rotisserie chicken (like I did)
DRAIN spaghetti.
ADD chicken, 1 cup of cheese, cans of soup, tomatoes & green chilis, & spaghetti in a large bowl and combine ingredients well.
BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until heated through.

Kraft FreshTake can be found at Walmart in the cheese isle.  The Southwest Three Cheese was only $1.98 and if you use the $1.00 off coupon below that brings it to .98 CENTS when you purchase chicken too!  You can’t beat that.

The Fresh Take Southwest 3-cheese seasoning added great flavor to my traditional chicken spaghetti recipe. I’ll definitely be cooking it this way again!
