Expert Tips

  • Decorate this casserole with a dollop of sour cream, sliced green onions and chopped avocado. For more color, add a sprinkling of chopped red bell pepper or pimientos.
  • Wagon wheel pasta lends an Old West feel to this recipe, but any similar-sized pasta will work.
  • Plain pasteurized cheese product can be used in place of the jalapeño-flavored variety.
