Something I whipped up the first time I needed to feed a big crew of people. It's simple, and a slight departure from the other southwestern pasta salads in the use of smoked mozzarella and fire-roasted tomatoes (a blessing that you can now get them diced in cans - saves me firing up the grill). I like to use shell or orecchiette pasta for this as each piece tends to capture some other ingredient inside its curve. As people expect to eat something aside from pasta salad at a meal (why I can't fathom), I try not to blow away anyone's tastebuds with heat. If after tasting you want to accentuate the smokiness and heat, I would use a hint of ground chipotle. To just kick up the heat with some depth but without more smokiness, some ground ancho is the way to go.
