Who doesn’t love a good one-pot pasta? I know you guys do because my one-pot hamburger helper is one of the most popular recipes on my blog. Some nights, you just gotta get food on the table for the entire family and this is One-Pot Taco Pasta does just that but it also will satisfy your tastes buds and it only uses cleaner ingredients.

And yes, even I eat this one because sometimes a little brown rice pasta is all I want after a long day. If you haven’t heard me say it before, Jovial Brown Rice Pasta is by far my favorite Gluten-Free Pasta. The texture is fantastic and it only has 2 ingredients: brown rice flour and water. That’s all. Can’t beat that, huh?

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I knew I would love it because it combines pasta and tacos, my favorites! It was a big hit with the kids and easy clean up.
    I did add to the recipe a bit, I used a taco seasoning packet in addition to the other spices and I used 5 cups of chicken broth because my noodles were a bit tough after 10 mins, and I covered my pot.
    I will be making this again!

    Love this recipe and it’s so easy! I love one-pot dishes when I’m cooking for my family esp when I need something quick while littles are at my feet. My husband said it was really good and to “add it to the list.” So, you know it’s good when its husband approved!
