This delicious recipe is easy and quick. You can throw it together in less than half an hour on a busy weeknight and have a filling and satisfying meal with simple ingredients that bring a wealth of flavors and textures.
Chorizo adds the taste of chili, cumin, coriander, cloves, and oregano. Fresh garlic and basil add more savory flavors. Sun-dried tomatoes and chicken give substance to the pasta dish, while kale and basil add brightness and even more flavor. Sour cream makes it creamy and delicious. And the pasta ties it all together in a hearty, filling dish.
