Southwestern Pasta Salad
This year I took the lazy girls way out and used a Suddenly Salad mix and jazzed it up.
I looked at the recipe for the Southwest Salad on the Betty Crocker site and it was a little too much. So I kept what I liked and changed a few things and I have to say the result is quite nice.
I'm going to add a package of Southwest Chicken to the salad before serving, but it is honestly yummy just the way it is.
1 box of Classic Suddenly Salad
1/2 cup italian dressing
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 can green giant mexicorn
1 can tomatoes and green chilis drained
1 can black beans drained
1 cup grated mexican cheese
Prepare pasta according to package directions
In a medium bowl combine, seasoning packet, dressing, about 5 splashes of hot sauce and cumin and mix well
Add pasta and remaining ingredients and combine
Cover and chill for an hour before serving to get the optimum flavor!
