Tex Mex Pasta Taco Mix

 

 

Have you ever had Hamburger Helper Taco?   And wonder why it tastes so good when its not really that healthy?   I absolutely loved it when I had it, but too much sodium, sugar, and  honestly I figured it could use more veggies, I wouldn’t eat it all the time, but then again, maybe there is a way to make it and have it be healthier, well there is, and this is my take on it.

Please note we didn’t put a lot of hot spice in it, but please feel free to add more spice, or hot sauce, and personalize it to your taste. 

This is a recipe that we both really enjoyed, and wow I’m here to tell you it is an amazing dish.
