Cheesy Taco Pasta
Cheesy Taco Pasta is an absolutely delicious switch up from your regular taco night. Start by boiling a pot of water for your pasta and cook according to package directions. As the pasta is cooking, brown some ground beef in a separate pan with some taco seasoning and add in some drained petite tomatoes.
We are seriously almost done with this dish- I told you it was easy!
Place the cooked meat on a plate to the side for a moment.
Put the pan back onto the stovetop and warm up the Ricos Gourmet Nacho Cheddar Cheese Sauce with a bit of milk stirring often.
Time to toss the meat back in with the cheese and add the drained pasta. Stir ingredients together and add all the toppings!
As dinner cooks, prep the toppings. We used tortilla chips, black olives, sliced serrano pepper, fresh diced tomato, chopped cilantro and an avocado. Dinner is on the table!
Ricos Cheese Sauces have a full line of cheese sauce that make entertaining or family dinner quick and easy! Besides this Cheesy Taco Pasta, here is how my family loves their Ricos:
- Chili cheese dogs with Ricos Premium Cheddar for game day.
- Bean dip with warm refried beans on the bottom and topped with Ricos Queso Blanco.
- Feed a crowd with Ricos Condensed Cheddar Cheese which has 50% more product once mixed correctly for a nacho bar that is perfect for parties or concession stands.
