Healthy Taco Pasta

Yields4 Servings

 1 box pasta of choice (I used Banza chickpea pasta), cooked according to package directions
 1 lb ground turkey or ground beef
 1 large red bell pepper (or 2 small), diced
 1 small yellow onion, diced
 1 can (15 oz) fire-roasted tomatoes
 1 can (15 oz) corn, drained & rinsed
 1 can (15 oz) black beans
 1 can (4 oz - I used Trader Joe's brand) green chilis (optional)
 1 packet taco seasoning (I used the spicy mix from Siete Foods)
 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
 2 tbsp avocado or olive oil
 salt & pepper
 toppings of choice (cilantro, sliced avocado, shredded cheese, etc)

To a large pot or dutch oven, add the oil over medium heat. Add bell pepper and onion, and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add in garlic, and cook for another minute.


Add in ground turkey or beef, and break into small pieces with your spatula. Cook until no pink remains (if using beef, I recommend draining the fat after this step).


Pour in corn, tomatoes, beans and hatch chilis, and mix to combine completely. Allow to simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.


Add in cooked pasta, and stir to incorporate.


Serve with toppings of choice. Enjoy!
