Mexican Pasta Skillet

So, a really good friend of mine was in town this past weekend and she informed me that she hasnt seen the end of Breaking Bad.  Appalled, I invited her over for dinner & to bask in the glory & sadness.  I figured white girl Mexican food was the way to go to say in theme.

I have to say that this was super tasty & very filling.
