DIRECTIONS

  • Brown onions and garlic in large skillet over medium heat, using a little water or a small amount of oil.
  • Add crushed tomatoes, cumin, salt, pepper, chili powder, oregano and pepper flakes.
  • Mix well and bring to a simmer.
  • Reduce heat to low and cook, covered for about 15 minutes.
  • Add green chiles, red peppers, beans and corn. Mix well and cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Remove 1/2 cup of the mixture from the pan, mix it with the sour cream and then add this mixture back into the pan and mix well.
  • To serve, place 1 cup of cooked pasta on each plate and top each serving with about 1 cup of the sauce.
  • Top with 3 tablespoons of the grated cheese.
  • I often combine the last steps and mix 2 or 3 cups of cooked pasta and the cheese right in with the sauce and serve the whole meal right out of the skillet.
