1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well.
2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat; add the onion, and sauté for 3 minutes, or until tender. Add the cheese, and cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Stir in the sour cream, blending well.
3. Stir in the tomatoes and pasta; cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, or until thoroughly heated.

NOTE: To tame the spiciness, switch to regular prepared cheese product and mild diced tomatoes and green chilies. You'll get all the flavor with just a slight kick.
