I love the taste of taco seasoning so I used it to create this amazing Sausage & Cheese Taco Pasta. I added medium salsa to kick the heat up a bit and add even more flavor but you can use mild, medium or hot salsa in this recipe.

  1. Rolling through this site for the first time, and I have to say, Wow! You really have an eye for the dish! I’m impressed. We do mostly vegan at my house. Hint hint. I think I’ll follow along. Thanks.

  2. Just to illustrate the range you find in any accomodative grocery store here in New Mexico – my usual low to medium hot salsa is a garlic chipotle base. Then, there usual is another 20 feet of shelves to choose from. Plus local roadside stands.
