One Pot Cheesy Mexican Pasta


Ingredients

  • 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 1/2 cups water
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp 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

Instructions

  1. 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.

  2. Add black beans, lime juice, and cheese; stir well to combine.

  3. Top with green onions. Serve immediately and enjoy!
