box Old El Paso™ taco shells (12)
pound ground beef or pork or veggie crumbles
jar muir glen™ organic pasta sauce
jar Old El Paso™ taco sauce
jalapeño (optional, to add spice/hotness)
Cook the pasta and shells according to directions on the box.
Cook the meat OR veggie crumbles in a pan on the stove on medium heat until done. With meat, drain the fat and return to the burner.
Add 1/2 the packet of taco seasoning and stir.
Add the speghetti sauce slowly until the meat or meat-like product is thick and sticky. You don't need to add all the sauce--save it to make more tacos later.
Once the pasta is done and drained, add hot sauce to taste and toss it with the cilantro.
Place the meat/veggie mixture in the taco shell, then add the spicy pasta. Top with a few jalapeño and you're done!
