Equipment

Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces Short Pasta (rotini, penne, etc.)
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 Cup Chunky Salsa

  • 2 Cups Cheddar Cheese (shredded and divided)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and grease a 9 x 13 baking dish. Set aside.
  • Cook the pasta noodles to al dente (until they had a sight bite). Drain the pasta, and set aside.
  • While the pasta cooks, combine the sour cream, taco seasoning, salsa, and green chiles in a large mixing bowl.

  • Store any leftover casserole in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
