Really easy! I used a can of tomatoes and habaneros so it was extra spicy, and replaced the beef with a can of black beans to accommodate our vegetarians. I also just mixed the cheese in with the sour cream rather than sprinkling it on top, so our version looked a little paler, but tasted just as good.
This was a winner after I increased the taco seasoning, cheese, sour cream, elbow pasta and added black olives.
