Southwestern Pasta Salad {CIC)

A pasta salad with a southwestern twist and just the right amount of heat.


This month's crazy ingredient challenge is black beans and mayonnaise.  Southwestern Pasta Salad uses both with a little heat in every beat.





Southwestern Pasta Salad

Each month our facebook group pick two ingredients to use in a recipe.  Sometimes the ingredients mesh together well, sometimes not so easy.  This month black beans and mayonnaise were the winners.  

Mayonnaise made me think of pasta salad and it was easy to add black beans to the mix.  I did want to have a little heat to my salad and BINGO, as I was shopping I found chipolte sauce.  This sauce worked perfectly and you could add as much as you want, depending on how much heat you want in each bite.

1/3 cup Sour Cream

In small bowl mix mayonnaise, sour cream and chipotle sauce together.
