Southwest Pasta Salad

After a long delay, sorry it took so long to get this post to you. This is a quick, easy put together pasta dish. If you added chicken, it could be a meal.

Ingredients:
8 ounces of Rotini pasta, or whatever you have on hand
1 can of Bush’s Seasoned Black Beans, drained, not rinsed
1 can of corn, drained
I 4 ounce jar of chopped pimentos, drained
1/2 cup of cubed sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup onion, diced fine
1 small green, yellow or red pepper, diced fine (you pick the color)

Dressing:
1 cup of salsa, I used Pace chunky medium
1 cup of sour cream

Smokey paprika and green onions to garnish, optional

Cook pasta according to package directions. Rinse with cold water after draining. Add beans, corn and pimentos. Stir to mix. Add onion and cheese, stirring to mix.

Combine salsa and sour cream together in a separate bowl. Add to pasta salad. Garnish right before serving.

If pasta dries out in the refrigerator, add more sour cream and salsa together.
