South of the Border Chicken and Pasta Skillet

This is my kind of meal! I love casserole meals...especially when they are this easy. It's worth a try!

2 cups rotini pasta, uncooked
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
1 (16oz) jar favorite salsa (I use Pace)
1/2 cup corn
1/2 cup black beans
4 oz. (1/2 block) cream cheese
1/4 t cumin
1 cup cheddar cheese, divided

Cook pasta according to package directions.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, add salsa, corn, black beans, cream cheese, 1/2 cup cheese, and cumin. Simmer on medium-low for about 5 minutes until everything is incorporated. Drain pasta and add to skillet along with chicken. Stir to coat. Top with remaining cheese. Cover and let simmer on low until cheese is melted.
