Semi Homemade Taco Mac Skillet
This is a new recipe-No family memories-YET! I was craving something a little spicy, but still wanted comfort food. I came across this recipe in Sandra Lee's Semi Homemade. It's byline was "Pot to Plate in 20 Minutes". I think the Bailey kids would like it on a cool night when Mom is really busy. The Suarez De Puga's might think it's Yummy too.
Taco Mac Skillet
1 pound lean hamburger or ground turkey
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
1 can Rotel tomatoes-I used mild and it was still spicy
2 pkgs Kraft original mac and cheese with the powder mix
Brown meat until it is no longer pink. Drain well. Stir in taco mix and Rotel. Boil macaroni according to package directions. Stir cheese powder into meat mixture. Drain noodles in colander and stir into meat mixture. I sprinkled extra shredded cheese on top for added flavor. It's like glorified hamburger helper.
