Cheesy Mexican Pasta

Cheesy Mexican Pasta: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

A few months ago I had a coupon for French's Crispy Jalapeños, so I decided to buy them and figure out how to use them later. Fast forward a bit and I decided to make this Cheesy Mexican Pasta, which calls for French's Crispy Fried Onions. It was then I remembered the crispy jalapeños and decided that they would go great with this recipe in place of the crispy fried onions.

I am so glad I made the switch. The crispy jalapeños added a nice spicy crunch to this cheesy and easy pasta dish.

Cheesy Mexican Pasta
Ingredients:
16 ounces penne pasta
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup milk
1 cup salsa
3 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
1 cup French's Crispy Jalapeños

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400º F. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.

Cook pasta according to package directions and drain.

In a large bowl combine the cooked pasta, cream of mushroom soup, milk, salsa and 1 cup cheese. Stir until everything is well mixed. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes.

Sprinkle the crispy jalapeños over the top of the casserole and then sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.

Enjoy!!!
