Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Whisk olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, garlic powder, cumin, ground chile pepper, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl. Stir corn, black beans, diced tomatoes and green chiles, and green onions into the dressing to coat. Gently mix avocados into bean mixture; fold bow tie pasta into the salad. Cover salad with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes before serving.

Great recipe! Great blend of spices and flavors. It's not too spicy but definitely has a lot of flavor. It's also very easy. I didn't chill the pasta in the fridge, just ran it under cold water, added it to the spice mixture and served it immediately. You can add whatever you want to this pasta - I omitted the chiles and onions and added black olives.
