Taco Pasta Salad

A Taco Pasta Salad filled with ground beef, veggies, cheese, tortilla chips, and dressed in a creamy catalina dressing! It’s a crowd favorite that’s welcome at every summer party, picnic, and barbecue.

If you love ground beef tacos with all the fixings, you’re going to love this Taco Pasta Salad! This recipe makes a big batch, so it’s perfect for picnics, potlucks, and summer barbecues.

Creamy taco pasta salad brings the best qualities of classic hard shell tacos, pasta salad, and hearty pasta dishes together in one bowl. Just like my taco pasta recipe, this crowd-pleasing side dish is filled with ground beef, a creamy sauce, and cheese. The extra fresh vegetables, taco fillings, and tortilla chips help bring every bite to life.

  • 16 ounces rotini pasta (or other medium-sized noodle like fusilli)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (or ground turkey, chicken, or plant-based ground protein)
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • ½ cup chunky salsa
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup Catalina dressing
  • 1 ½ cups halved grape tomatoes (or quartered if they’re large)
  • 3 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 2 cups finely shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • ½ medium red onion, diced
  • tortilla chips or Doritos, for serving, optional
  • chopped cilantro, for garnish
