Mexican Macaroni/Pasta Salad Recipe

It's just after 5:30 in the morning and we are going to be making Mexican pasta saladSo wake up everybody, grab your coffee and let's get started

So the first thing I'm going to do is get my pasta going, the water is boiling This is a 16 ounces ,1 pound of elbow macaroni You can use whatever kind of pasta that you like When this is done I'm going to rinse it off with cold water to cool it down So while I'm waiting for my pasta I'm going to cut up 3 green onions, finely chop it and I'm going to use half of this red onion and finely chop it also

While I'm waiting for the pasta to finish up let's mix up our dressing We're going to need 1 cup of salsa and we're also going to need 1 cup of sour cream ,1/4 of a cup of mayonnaise and a I have 1/2 of a teaspoon of cumin probably about a teaspoon of salt probably a half a teaspoon or so of black pepper Salt and pepper is to your taste We'll go ahead and add that and mix it up Okay I'm going to move this aside

My pasta should be ready I'm gonna go drain it with cold water Okay my pasta has finished I'm gonna go ahead and add our green and red onion I also have a 15 ounce can of black beans that I rinsed and drained I have three roma tomatoes that I chopped up

I have some drained canned corn here I'm not going to use the whole can I don't think I'm gonna start off with two good handfuls Black olive I think I'll just go ahead and use this whole can because I love black olives this is a three ounce can I'm going to give this just a quick toss before I add the dressing Okay now we're ready to add our dressing

This recipe doesn't call for cheese but I'm going to add some shredded cheddar just because and if there's anything you don't like that I'm adding of course you can take it out and add whatever you want no strict rules here Just going to put a couple handfuls in And I just tasted this too and I think it needs a little bit more salt There you go everyone, Mexican pasta salad I'm always looking for a good pasta salad recipe and this is one of them

Just make sure you let this chill for two to three hours before serving the longer the better I hope you found this video helpful Thank you everyone for watching and I will see you soon
