Chili Pasta

Usually I like my pasta with cream cheese sauce and pork or beef, but yesterday I thought I’d spice things up a little. Here is a great recipe for pasta with chili:


16 oz of red kidney beans, rinsed and drained.
12 oz of salsa.
2 garlic cloves, chopped finely.
1 small onion, peeled and finely diced.
1 jalapeño, cored and thinly sliced.
½ cup of grated cheddar cheese.
1 tablespoon of chili powder.
1 teaspoon of cumin.

Cooking procedure: 

Cook the pasta as advised on its packaging.

While it’s cooking, combine the remaining ingredients (except for the cheddar cheese) in large pot and heat until the onion is cooked.

When pasta is done, drain and transfer to a serving bowl. Add the contents of pot and toss gently until well combined.

Sprinkle the cheese on top.
