Here's the pasta we use (to be honest you could probably find this cheaper at your local store):
Story behind the recipe:
Allergy Girl: It's like a taco soup only better! It's so flipping good!
Chef: It's not a soup...
Allergy Girl:... It seems like a soup... It's soupy...
Chef: All the sauce will thicken up and soak into the pasta. It's not a soup...
Allergy Girl: Oh okay. So... what do you call it then?
Chef: Creamy Mexican pasta.
Allergy Girl: You got it. Whatever it is, I want more and you definitely have to make this again!
Chef: Yeah, it's not soup, love.
This creamy Mexican pasta is without a doubt, comfort food. Full of Mexican flavor, but has the creaminess and richness of an American mac and cheese (in the best way). It's easy to make and it's very easy to make a lot of it for a large group of people: at a dinner party, family get together, a large family, or if you just wanna be set for leftovers for the next couple days. Goes great with a glass of wine if you're up for a drink.
