Taco Pasta Salad

I liked the idea so much I had to have it for dinner





Tasted like cold chili mac, but it was good

I finished it with crumbled doritos and cheddar


I think kids would love it

and it would be great for a picnic or party

You have to be the first person that ever tried a recipe that quick. Great photo by the way. Thanks for letting me know. Debbie

Kind of reminds when I was a poor college student. Kraft Macaroni and cheese mixed with Chili beans.. Kind of a really fast Chili-Mac... Not too bad tasting.. HUGE salt load though.
