Easy Fiesta Pasta Bake The Southern Lady Cooks

This easy fiesta pasta bake is full of creamy cheese, spices, and ground beef. My family loves this dish. It really makes the perfect weeknight dinner and it’s budget-friendly. It’s quick and full of flavor. It’s also super versatile in that you can add in or take our what your family likes and dislikes. I love dishes like this because they are simple, no fuss and delicious!

Fiesta Pasta Bake Ingredients Needed:

Ground beef

Wide egg noodles

Mild Rotel tomatoes

Can of Campbell’s condensed Fiesta Nacho cheese soup

Whipping cream

Diced onion

Garlic powder


Chili powder

Shredded Fiesta cheese (taco blend)

Recipe Notes: We make this dish with lean ground beef but you can easily use ground turkey or even ground chicken. If you want to make this dish spicy, you can use hot Rotel tomatoes. You can also use any flavor of shredded cheese that your family enjoys.

If you like this recipe, you may want to try our sloppy joe pasta casserole. It’s also super easy and very budget-friendly.

  • 1 lb of lean ground beef
  • 12 ounces of wide egg noodles
  • 1 10 ounce can of mild Rotel tomatoes
  • 1 10 ounce can of Campbell's condensed fiesta nacho cheese soup
  • 1 cup of whipping cream

  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 2 cups of shredded fiesta cheese taco blend


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9X13 baking dish. Brown onions and ground beef over medium heat. Add garlic powder, cumin, and chili powder to the meat mixture. Drain off any grease.
  • Cook noodles according to package and drain. In a bowl, mix together ground beef, Fiesta soup, Rotel tomatoes (do not drain tomatoes), and whipping cream. Stir in noodles and a cup of shredded cheese.
  • Pour mixture into a greased 9X13 casserole dish and top with remainder of cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes until warmed through and cheese is melted.


If you can't find the Fiesta Nacho soup, you can use Campbell's cheese soup. If you want a kick, add hot Rotel tomatoes. This dish is great garnished with sour cream.
