Creamy Taco Pasta

I had leftover taco ingredients and gluten free pasta. What did I do with all this comforty goodness? I turned it into dinner. Super easy.

1lb ground beef or venison
1lb gluten free pasta
1 cup fresh corn
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 package cream cheese
1/2 cup pepper jack cheese
1/2 cup sharp cheddar
1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup black beans
1 Spanish onion
1 green bell pepper
1 jalepeno

Make the pasta according to box, set aside.
Sauté diced onions, corn, and diced peppers, add in meat. Once that’s all incorporated and simmering add in the beans and tomatoes. Add in seasoning to taste. It should smell incredibly amazing at this point. Gently stir in the shredded or cubed cheese. I added mine in big chunks. Throw in the cream cheese and sour cream. Fold in the pasta until everything is incorporated. Top with diced avocados.
