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 (if the taco seasoning you use contains a lot of salt, you may want to reduce this)
  • 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)

Preparation

Step 1

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 ¼ to ½ 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.
