Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a rolling boil; cook the rotini in the boiling water until the pasta is cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain. Rinse under cold running water until completely cooled; drain thoroughly.
  2. Whisk the salsa, mayonnaise, sour cream, black beans, Mexican-style corn, red bell pepper, green onions, black olives, garlic powder, cumin, cilantro, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl; add the cooled pasta and stir to coat evenly. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours to overnight before serving.

Wow this was fantastic! I made it for a BBQ last night as I thought it would be something unexpected and less likely to be duplicated. I was right! I like to make a new recipe exactly as it's written to give an accurate review, but I did use fat free sour cream and light mayo (I'm trying to drop a few pounds) and it was so creamy you wouldn't have guessed it was healthy. There was just the right amount of wet ingredients so it wasn't dry and there were so many textures with the olives and corn and beans! My taste test turned into a bowl of it before the BBQ and everyone raved about it. I am making this again next week for another BBQ and I will try not to eat it all before hand! Thanks so much for the recipe!

What a pretty pretty dish. I doubled it and loved it. I think my guest will really like it tomorrow for our taco dinner. Thanks for sharing.

WOW! This pasta salad is great! Served it for Father's Day and it was well received. What a welcome change from regular pasta salads. As people tasted it, you could see the look of surprise on their faces... no one expected a pasta salad with zip and a lot of people went back for seconds. The medium salsa was perfect for most tastes, I don't think I would use a hot salsa. Wish I had doubled the recipe, because I love this salad and would have liked to have leftovers for myself and to send home with others... lol Several people asked for the recipe; always a good feeling when you're cooking for others.
