ROTEL brand tomatoes and chilies are a very popular staple in Southwest Louisiana. That brand of tomatoes is used in so many Cajun dishes, that many of us just say, “Add the Rotel.” Rotel is a 10 oz can of diced tomatoes and green chilies, packed in its own juice. It is sold as mild in a green can, although that version is nicely spicy, and two different red cans where you pick your spiciness. It is used in recipes, never by itself. If you can’t find the ROTEL brand, just look for any canned product consisting of diced tomatoes and green chilies.


  • 4 to 5 chicken breasts
  • 1 lbs angel hair pasta
  • 1 lbs Velveeta cheese
  • 1 stick margarine
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can ROTEL chilies and tomato


Step 1

Add salt and pepper to a pot of water and boil the chicken. Remove from water and allow to cool.

Step 2

Boil the pasta in the chicken broth. Do not drain the pasta completely. Leave some broth to add moisture to the dish.

Step 3

Chop the chicken and mix with the cooked pasta.

Step 4

Chop the onion and sauté in margarine.

Step 5

Mix all ingredients together in a 9xl3-inch baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for several minutes, until the cheese melts.
