I think pasta makes a great comfort dish. And this Easy Fiesta Ravioli is exactly that. Why easy? Well we use pre-made beef ravioli.
Using pre-made ravioli saves you a TON of time compared to making your own. This dish is so easy to make that you can make it for dinner during the week.
When it comes to the salsa, I will leave it up to you on how much heat you want it to have. I like to use mild chunky salsa when making this dish. The combination of red enchilada sauce and salsa will make this a tad on the hot side.
You can also experiment with different kinds of ravioli if you want. A nice frozen chicken ravioli would go nicely with this recipe red sauce. Possibly a nice frozen cheese ravioli too.
If you don't have any Monterey Jack Cheese on hand, you can substitute for mozzarella cheese or any other white cheese that melts well.
Additionally if you don't have any black olives, you can use green olives or leave them out completely! One of these days I am going to use diced green chilies to make it a truly Mexican inspired dish.
💭 Serving Suggestions
What does better with a great pasta dish than some Cheesy Garlic Bread. This is the best garlic bread you will ever have!
This fusion dish combines the familiar comfort of ravioli with the bold and vibrant flavors of Mexican cuisine, creating a unique experience.
