RECIPE: Mexican Alfredo (shrimp, chicken, or vegetarian)

Hello all,

I was introduced to Mexican Alfredo a few years ago and I keep making it. I will go a few months forgetting about it and then when I make it I wonder how I could have forgotten about it in the first place!

It’s an Italian Alfredo dish with a Mexican twist. Pure genius. I first learned about it on Taste of Home. But recently I’ve made a few tweaks to make it more nutrient dense!

Ok then, on to it.

The recipe makes 4 servings.


  • 8 ounces pasta (I used POW Pasta this last time)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed (optional)
  • 1/2 pouch fajita seasoning
  • 1 pound shrimp or chicken (optional)
  • 2/3 of a 15 oz jar Alfredo sauce
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1-2 handfuls of cheese to top it


  1. Prepare pasta according to instructions on box
  2. Preheat oven to 350F
  3. Heat olive oil in pan on medium heat and add onions, sauté until translucent (~5 minutes)
  4. Add shrimp or chicken, and cook for 3-4 minutes or 7-9 minutes respectively; stir frequently while cooking
  5. Add Alfredo sauce, milk, and salsa
  6. Allow to come to a boil and remove from heat
  7. Put in oven safe bakeware, too with shredded cheese, and bake for 15 minutes.

Sahtain all,

– Dua
