About the Recipe

Warm and comforting chipotle taco pasta combines savory, crunchy, and hearty flavors. This dish can be made with a vegan meatless crumble and vegan cheese to make it a vegan dish. Or it can be made with ground beef and regular cheese. It's up to you and your preference. I would also make this a great potluck dish for any time of year. This one is sure to be a hit!
