Sounds like a weird combination, right? But I love pasta, and I love Mexican so when I saw this recipe I decided to give it a shot. This is probably one of my top five favorite dinners.
Gather your ingredients:
- 1 lb. ground beef (I used ground deer, yum!)
- 12 oz. pasta of your choice- shells or rotini complement this nicely.
- 1 small onion, chopped fine
- 1 love of garlic, minced
- 1 can mild rotel
- 1 packet of taco seasoning (I use the hot and spicy, but it is truly pretty spicy)
- 3 oz cream cheese
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Cook your pasta and brown your meat and onions.
Add your Rotel (don't drain), garlic, and taco seasoning and simmer for 5 minutes.
I put the 3 oz of cream cheese in the microwave briefly to help it melt down some, then add it and the 1/2 cup sour cream into the meat mixture (I transferred to the pasta pot to allow more room), stir it all together.
Add some fresh cilantro in if preferred
