Ingredients Related Tips

  • 1 13.5 oz. box of any Pasta you like (I used whole wheat rotini)
  • 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
  • 1/4 cup taco seasoning
  • 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)


  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
