  1. Begin by boiling the rotini pasta according to the package instructions. Once done, drain the pasta thoroughly.
  2. In a separate skillet, brown the ground beef until fully cooked. Drain any excess grease.
  3. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the cooked beef, giving it that classic taco flavor. Mix well to ensure every morsel is seasoned to perfection.
  4. While the beef is simmering, take your drained pasta and add just enough Catalina dressing to give it a vibrant hue and an extra kick of flavor. Half a bottle should suffice for one box of pasta.
  5. Incorporate the seasoned taco meat into your pasta, followed by a generous handful of cheese. This is where the cheesiness begins to shine.
  6. Now, add some crushed Doritos for that signature crunch. About three handfuls should do the trick.
  7. Finally, toss in the black olives for a briny touch. Remember, it’s all about balance and flavor!
  8. Give everything a good mix, ensuring all the components are evenly distributed, and top it off with more cheese.
