Chipotle Chicken Penne Recipe

Getting creative in the kitchen is always fun, so when I had the opportunity to create a sponsored recipe using non-dairy alternatives like a Cashew Plant-Based Beverage I couldn’t pass it up.

I tried more than one before landing on a favorite, but this was the clear winner. A little spice (or a lot!) is balanced with Pacific Foods’ Cashew Vanilla Unsweetened Non-Dairy Beverage.

This made It was more than enough to feed my family of four … and still have leftovers for lunch the next day. This recipe is dairy-free and on the spicier side. We love being able to opt for plant-based ingredients, but of course you can sub out for your favorites and tone down the spice by simply using a bit less. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
