Taco Pasta is a quick and easy one pot pasta dish is loaded with taco flavor, juicy chunks of beef, tomatoes, beans, and cheese. This is the perfect weeknight family meal!
Easy, cheesy and flavorful. This one pot taco pasta meal is sure to become a family favorite. It's a go to in my house for busy weeknights, for those days when I only have 30 minutes in between the end of homework and the start of soccer practice.
This dish has a familiar feeling of those pre-packaged pasta meals where you just need to buy a pound of beef and everything else is included in the box. I'm sure you know which ones I'm referring to. Except this taco pasta is made at home from scratch using real ingredients.
We're even using a homemade taco seasoning, which is included in the recipe below. You can use a premade taco seasoning if you have one on hand and it's easier.
I love using my own because I can adjust the heat according to who is going to be eating it. Just add or reduce the amount of chili powder to change the heat of the dish. The amount used in the recipe is a very mild, subtle bit.
My children always enjoy this dish and eat it right up. No complaints! If you’re concerned about any amount of heat for kids you can always reduce the amount of chili powder and use plain diced tomatoes instead of the tomatoes with the diced green chiles.
And of course an extra bit of cheese as a topping always makes it better! Plus feel free to top with chopped cilantro, green onion, sour cream, or any other traditional taco toppings you may enjoy! This is such an easy dish to change up and make your own.
