As I write this blog post, I literally have a batch of this one pot cheesy taco pasta simmering on the stove top right now. At the request of the hubby of course. However you’ll hear no complaints coming from me. It’s been one of those weeks where the list of things to do seems never ending; and i’ll say it every time, thank god for one pot meals!
In about 30 minutes this meal can be on your dining room table and ready to enjoy. This one is obviously a keeper as i’ve made it more than a few times at this point, and currently making it again at this very moment. Hmmmm I can smell it now!
Having made this so many times, the key is in the use of a good quality mild salsa, and penzey’s original taco seasoning. I don’t know about you, but I have tried every taco seasoning available at the market: I’ve even homemade my own. Nothing compares to penzey’s, and that’s pretty much true for most of their spices. The final and most important step is the crushed up frito corn chips for that much needed crunch. It isn’t until you add the fritos that it tastes like a true taco pasta.
I gotta say friends, this might be my favorite one pot meal we’ve shared thus far on the blog. I realize that is a big statement to make because we’ve shared quite of few, but it’s totally possible most of you will feel this way as well. To each there own, but make the decision for yourself. Listed below are a few more of our one pot/pan creations.
- One pot creamy tomato pasta
- Buffalo Chicken & Potato Skillet
