Taco Pasta! Everything you want in a taco baked into a casserole that is whole comforting and delicious!
If you don't have any leftover pasta, cook some up first. I like the orecchietta because all the ingredients settle into the pockets and you get a bite of it all. Warm the pasta and toss with some butter.
Brown the ground beef in a skillet with the spices and vinegar. Place in a small casserole dish and mix in the minced jalapeño and stir well. Add the pasta and cheese. Mix well and add salt and pepper to taste.
Top the dish with grated or sliced cheese. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes, or until all the cheese is melted and the edges are starting to brown.
Top with avocado slices and grape tomato halves. Serve hot!
