Taco Pasta Salad


This pasta salad is making the rounds! It was originally “wagon wheel” taco pasta salad, but I didn’t have wagon wheels!

Very tasty and different! I’ll make this again.

3-4 tbsp lime juice

1 tbsp cumin

1-2 tsp chili powder

2 garlic cloves, minced

freshly ground salt & pepper

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 avocado, diced


– Cook the pasta al dente according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water.

– In a large bowl, combine the black beans, corn, tomatoes, salsa, and cheese. Add the cooled pasta and mix well.
