Chris and I challenged ourselves this week to come up with two vegan recipes that were easy to make, require simple ingredients, and budget-friendly. We made it a point to be more conscious of our spending this year and one of the ways we are doing that is by simplifying our grocery lists and spending less when we shop. We have also found that you all seem to love when we do one-pot, minimal ingredient and/or budget-friendly recipes, so here we go!

Bowls of ingredients for taco pasta

We started shopping at Winco after moving to Vancouver, WA and if you have one in your area, we highly recommend it. They have the largest bulk section I have ever seen and it has helped us produce way less food waste than ever before. For this recipe, we were able to buy our spices and pasta in bulk and purchase only as much as we needed, so we didn’t have any random ingredients left.

When it comes to pasta, the possibilities are endless. Think of the noodles as a canvas to add any and all flavors and ingredients in order to create a delicious dish. We already have a recipe for Instant Pot Pizza Pasta, so Taco Pasta was the next creation we thought to try. What’s next? Vegan Cheeseburger Pasta? I guess you’ll have to wait and find out!

This Taco Pasta is bursting with authentic taco flavor. It packs a little kick and is the perfect meal to whip up for your family after a busy day when you don’t feel like preparing something extravagant.
