  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 ounces)

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Cater to kids! Use the fun shaped pastas they like, such as wagon wheel, bow tie, corkscrew or the novelty shapes found at specialty food shops.
  • tip 2
    Like it spicy? Use a medium or hot variety of salsa to wake up those taste buds.
  • tip 3
    Serve in shallow bowls, and arrange tortilla chips around the rim of each bowl. Top with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro for extra Southwest flair.
