ONE POT SOUTHWEST PASTA


One Pot Wonder Southwest Pasta - Dinner in under 30 minutes in one pot! Pasta, black beans, corn, and bell peppers are spiced up with Rotel and taco seasoning. It's an easy vegetarian meal.


Ingredients

1 (13.5 oz.) box of whole wheat rotini or any pasta you like
2 cups frozen corn kernels
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1/2 medium red onion, sliced
1 (15 oz.) can Rotel canned tomatoes and chilies, I used the Mexican blend with lime and cilantro
1/4 cup taco seasoning, I used Old El Paso, medium
1 tsp. salt*
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
4 cups fat-free chicken or vegetable broth
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup Mexican cheese blend, plus more for topping (Optional)

Instructions
  1. Add all but the last 2 ingredients (beans and cheese) to a large pot. Stir, cover, and bring to a rolling boil.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, covered, for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. There should be 1/4 to 1/2 inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot when it is done.
  3. Remove from heat. Stir in the black beans and cheese (optional). Let it rest for 5 minutes to warm the beans, melt the cheese, and absorb the excess liquid.

Notes
*if the taco seasoning you use contains a lot of salt, you may want to reduce this
