Enchilada Pasta Bake is a delicious way to use up leftover taco meat and great for family dinner. Noodles tossed with a creamy, cheesy, and slightly spicy sauce mixed with taco-seasoned ground beef, corn, and black beans.
Enchilada Pasta Bake
This Enchilada Pasta Bake recipe doesn’t really have a story, except that I love making it. And eating it. And even reheating it as leftovers. So I wanted to share it with you so that you could love it with me!
After Taco Night at our house, we usually have about a pound of meat left (I usually make 3 pounds, hoping for leftovers!), which works out perfectly for me because that’s exactly how much I need for this Enchilada Pasta Bake recipe! But if you don’t have any leftovers handy, that’s okay too. You can just brown a pound of ground beef and add taco seasoning. It’ll just take a few minutes and then you’re all set!
