A nice, different way to make tortellini. Good for potlucks.

Tasted wonderful but my sour cream curdled as well. I'm going to try again and make it into a sauce, then add it. I loved the flavor.
Nobody in my family cared for this recipe. I followed it to the letter, but it just wasn't good. It was mushy and lacking flavor despite some promising ingredients. Perhaps it could be good if you added some more flavor, but mostly I couldn't get past the odd combo of pasta and southwestern ingredients.
This came together quickly. I used sausage tortellini since that's what was in the freezer. Yummy!
