9. Taco Pasta Salad Recipe
Taco Pasta Salad Recipe
The taco flavors of this pasta salad comes from the salsa and the taco seasonings so be sure to use a really good brand of both. I used a smokey salsa from the deli that was full of flavor and spices and a homemade taco seasoning mix. Because of this I didn’t have to add in any additional seasonings like cumin, paprika, salt, pepper, etc. If your salsa is on the blah side you may need to spruce up the noodles by adding in some spices like cummin, chili powder, oregano, fresh garlic, etc. The noodles should taste flavorful enough by themselves.
10. Smoked Chicken Cheese Quesadilla Recipe
