Southwestern Pasta Salad – A creamy pasta salad filled with grilled chicken, black beans, corn, tomatoes, green chiles, cilantro, green onions, and Mexican spices.
This Southwestern Pasta Salad is calling my name again! I may have to make it again really soon. It makes a great side dish if you go meatless, but it also makes a perfect lunch when you add a protein to it!
I love all things with corn, black beans, and Mexican spices too. I could eat every meal with these flavors pretty much. Throw some pasta in with that, and it’s pretty much got my name all over it. I mean I have this recipe, and this one, and this one too, which pretty much show my love for all things southwestern.
Tips for making Southwestern Pasta Salad:
- Make it meatless for a nice side dish.
- Change up your protein. You could use grilled chicken or grilled shrimp too.
- This is super customizable, so you can omit any ingredients that aren’t your thing.
