Taco night, meet pasta. Adding chorizo and taco seasoning give our Taco Pasta Salad an unmistakable taco feel and taste. The chorizo and taco seasoning give the pasta an unmistakable taco feel and taste. Riffing off of a classic cilantro garnish, the cilantro vinaigrette adds color and a ton of flavor to the pasta. The bell pepper, corn, onion, and tomato complement all of the other flavors present in the dish, and sprinkling some queso fresco on top adds a burst of salt and some textural contrast. This dish makes a great side at a weeknight dinner or a foolproof potluck contribution. If you can’t find uncased ground chorizo, you can use chorizo in links and just take it out of the casing. Be sure to drain the chorizo so the pasta won’t get too greasy.
