3 cups spiral pasta (I used bow tie, since that's what I had)
1 pound ground beef (I used turkey instead)
2 sweet red peppers, chopped
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/4 cup flour
1 envelope taco seasoning
1/4 tsp. pepper
2-1/4 cups milk
2 cups (8-oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 cup coarsely crushed tortilla chips
Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile cook meat and red peppers over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
Stir in the butter, flour, taco seasoning until blended. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in cheese and corn until cheese is melted.
Drain noodles; add to meat mixture and stir to coat. Sprinkle with crushed tortilla chips. Makes 6 servings.
