1 package (1 oz) taco seasoning mix
1 1/2 cups water
1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 cups sour cream (12 oz)
2 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (10 oz)
2 cans (4 oz each) whole green chiles, drained, chopped

Heat oven to 350F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. Rinse with cold water; drain well.

In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in tomato paste, taco seasoning mix and water. Cook over medium heat 5 to 10 minutes until hot and bubbly.
