Trader Joe’s Hack: Creamy Chicken And Poblano Ravioli With Green Chili Alfredo Sauce

by Shaina

For me, a meal is all about the sauce. I truly believe its the most important part of a recipe. I recently got an instant pot and have been making a ton of Mexican style shredded chicken for burritos. To top off my burritos I’ve been making a green chili sour cream sauce. So delicious! 

I’ve been eyeballing Trader Joe’s Creamy Chicken and Poblano Ravioli for a while now but couldn’t really think of a good way to prepare them. I felt like poblanos in ravioli was kind of an interesting combination of flavors, adding a Mexican flare to a classic Italian food. So I got to thinking, what if I used the green chilis I have been using in my burrito sauce in an alfredo sauce… sounds a little weird but what the heck, figured I would give it a shot. 

This sauce turned out so much better than I expected and it paired PERFECTLY with Trader Joe’s Chicken and Poblano Raviolis. I love Mexican food and I love Italian food. This dish is really the best of both worlds. To make the sauce I used my Classic 20-Minute Lemon Alfredo Sauce recipe as a guideline, but instead of adding lemon I replaced it with green chilis. Super easy, super quick recipe. Leave a comment below and tell me what you think!
