Instructions

  1. Cook pasta la dente according to box instructions. Drain well and cool. Stir or flip while cooling so it does not stick too much.
  2. In large skillet over medium heat brown ground beef. Drain any excess fat. Turn heat to low and add taco seasoning and water. Simmer for 7-10 minutes.
  3. In small bowl whisk together ranch dressing, adobo sauce, sour cream and salsa.
  4. Add cooled pasta to large bowl. Add mixed dressing, cheddar, tomatoes, scallions, black beans, romaine and seasoned beef. Stir gently to coat and serve.
  5. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Notes

You can use any small pasta for this dish like small shells, macaroni, rotini or bowtie pasta.
Adobo sauce can be made homemade or purchased in the Mexican section of your grocery store. You can also but a can of chipotle peppers packed in adobo sauce and use the pepper for other recipes. Canned chili peppers that have been continuously refrigerated will keep for about 1 to 2 months.
