Gluten Free Living – 2017
Taco Pasta Skillet is a 30-minute one-pot meal that’s a delightful Tex-Mex entree. I used lean ground beef, diced tomatoes, green chilies, black beans, Fiesta corn, Mexican cheese blend, gluten free rotini and my Homemade Taco Seasoning. I topped the skillet with sour cream, olives, tomatoes, fresh cilantro, cheese and avocados. However, adding guacamole, pico de gallo or salsa are also great options.
I was in the mood for a Tex-Mex entree a couple of weeks ago. I love my 30-minute Mexican Beef and Rice Skillet and Mexican Chicken, Beans and Rice Skillet. But I wanted something a little different. What about pasta with Tex-Mex? I knew I wouldn’t eat it unless I used gluten free pasta, so that’s what I did. I was so happy with the results.
The pasta does not have to be cooked separately and added in later. No, this is a one-pot meal and the pasta cooks in the skillet. The toppings make it marvelous. As I stated in other posts, I love sliced avocados in just about everything. I lenjoy having a few slices on almost any Tex-Mex entree. But if you have the time, you can always make guacamole to serve with this.
