Two of my favorite foods come together in this oh so easy (and delicious) Taco Pasta Salad!
I love tacos and I love pasta! So it’s pretty safe to say that I got really excited when given the opportunity to work with RO*TEL to create a Mexican-inspired recipe. Really, how can you go wrong with Mexican ingredients in a pasta dish surrounded by a creamy taco sauce?!
This recipe is so easy to make and it makes enough to feed a good crowd. If you’ve got a party or gathering that you need to bring a dish that everyone will love, this is your recipe. It makes a monster bowl and feeds 10 to 12 easily.
I love RO*TEL because it’s affordable and I always have it on hand. I bought it during my last Walmart trip, along with the other veggies that are in this pasta salad. RO*TEL is located on the aisle with pasta and pasta sauces in Walmart.
RO*TEL gives this pasta salad a kick! It’s perfectly seasoned with taco seasoning in a creamy sauce with green onions, black beans, mexi corn, cheese, cilantro, a little lime juice and sharp cheddar cheese.
Did you know about this helpful little kitchen hack? Spraying cooking spray on your cheese grater makes cleanup SO EASY after shredding cheese. I used to HATE having to hand wash my cheese grater after shredding cheese… not any more! 🙂
