Taco flavors in a cheesy pasta bake.
Boil pasta according to package directions. When done, drain it and set aside.
Into a large frying pan over medium heat, add in your ground meat, diced peppers and onions. Fry until beef is cooked through. Make sure to break it up into small pieces with your spatula.
Over low heat toss cooked pasta in with your meat and vegetables, and add the cream cheese and shredded cheese. Mix until cheese is all mixed in (the cream cheese should melt right in and coat pasta). Add in sour cream, salsa, beans and taco seasoning. Remove from heat.
Pour into a 1-1.5 quart baking dish and top with tortilla chips and diced tomatoes.
Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.
Garnish with sliced scallions or fresh cilantro.
My kids really like this recipe because they say It taste just like pizza. Besides getting rave reviews at home, this was another popular side we used to have on the TaylorMade Menu in the cafe. This is a lovely way to use stale bread or when you have fresh farmers market tomatoes. You can use any kind you like; I have made this recipe with all kinds—red, yellow and orange tomatoes, grape tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, etc.
