Recipe : Southwestern Casserole

Southwestern Casserole is a Tasefully Simple recipe that I found forever ago when I was a Tastefully Simple consultant. I’ve tweaked it a bit over the years until I landed on this variation. It does call for Tastefully Simple Corn, Black Bean Salsa, which you have to purchase from a consultant. I’m sure there are other corn and black bean salsas out there that you could substitute. I’ve just never found one I like as much as this one.

All that being said, here’s the recipe…


  • 1 jar Corn, Black Bean Salsa (I use Tastefully Simple)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups cooked chicken
  • 8 ounces of pasta, prepared
  • 1.5 cups shredded cheese (I usually mix cheddar and colby jack)

Mix the salsa, sour cream, chicken and pasta in a large bowl.

Place in a casserole dish. (I usually split it into two small dishes for my smaller family.)

Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

This dish freezes BEAUTIFULLY. Just cover after you sprinkle the cheese and freeze.


I once had a friend say it tastes like a “pasta burrito.” It’s SO easy to make and a great one to deliver to friends with a side salad and some rolls.
