One Pot Cheesy Mexican Pasta combines your favorite Mexican flavors with your favorite pasta! Loaded with black beans, peppers, and cheese, this meal is sure to be a hit!
- 1 pound pasta noodles (I liked shells for this recipe)
- 1 red pepper , sliced
- 1 yellow pepper , sliced
- 1 cup frozen corn
- 1 red onion , sliced
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 2 10 ounce cans RO*TEL with Green Chilies (do not strain)
- 4 ½ cups water
- 1 TBS olive oil
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 can black beans , drained and rinsed (14 ounces)
- juice from 1 lime
- 1 cup colby jack cheese , shredded
- 3 green onions , chopped
In a large stock pot, add pasta, peppers, corn, red onion, taco seasoning, RO*TEL, olive oil, and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine, cover, and turn heat on high. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium/low (so it's simmering), stir, and cover. Cook for 12-16 minutes or until pasta is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed - stir throughout this cook time.
Add black beans, lime juice, and cheese; stir well to combine.
Top with green onions. Serve immediately and enjoy!
