How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions, draining well.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add onion, and sauté 3 to 5 minutes or until tender. Add cheese, and cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Stir in sour cream, blending well. Stir in tomatoes and green chiles and pasta; cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Tasted fantastic! Will definitely make this again! I substituted low fat plain yogurt for half of the sour cream. I was worried that it was going to be soupy, but it really thickens as it sits those last 5 minutes or so.
My kids loved this! I made this recipe with whole wheat pasta instead of white. The only thing I may do different nex time is add a little milk to the recipe, and perhaps make with regular cheese instead of the mexican cheese. But only because my husband has a much more sensative palate than my children and I, and it was much to spicy for him. I would add the milk becuase the cheeses sauce was a little thick. Just add a salad and this is one of those great weeknight meals when you don't have a lot of time to cook. Also a good plus is that the cost of this meal is pertty low!
I only like baked mac and cheese and I didn't realize this was not baked so I added another 2 cups of cheese this time pizza cheese, 3 beaten eggs, a cup of milk and added Italian bread crumbs on top and baked it at 350 for 35 mins and it was awesome! It all got eaten with no leftovers.
I served it with steak and a fruit salad
