Spicy Cilantro Lime Chicken Pasta Salad

I love throwing together pasta salads in the summer. Usually involves some leftovers and Pasta. Really this should have been a recipe I shared with you in the summer but you know how it goes. And now I am craving summer, missing summer. So I am holding on to those last couple summer recipes that are still on my computer just waiting to be posted to the blog.

Spicy Cilantro Lime Chicken Pasta Salad

2 cups cooked macaroni shells or any pasta you have
1 can of beans (rinsed)
1 bell pepper chopped
1 can diced tomatoes drained

handful of parsley chopped (2 TB)

1/2 tsp chipotle chili pepper (can be adjusted more or less)

It's almost too pretty to add the sauce
