Since everyone keeps asking for this, I dropped what I was doing to get it on here. 🙂 This calls for boxed mac & cheese and since I make all my mac and cheese from scratch I was skeptical. 🙂 I HATE boxed macaroni and cheese, but this was WONDERFUL! My boys all vouch for it, also. 🙂
1 pkg (14 oz) Kraft Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
1 lb ground beef
1 pkg Taco seasoning mix
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 cup shredded mexican cheese mix
1 cup Thick N Chunky Salsa
Preheat oven to 400 F. Prepare mac & cheese as directed on package. Brown beaf and drain while mac & cheese is cooking. Add taco seasoning to meat and simmer 5 minutes.
Stir sour cream into prepared Dinner. Spoon half of the Dinner mixture into 8 inch square baking dish; top with layers of meat mixture, cheddar cheese and remaining Dinner.
Bake 15 minutes. Top with salsa and Mexican Cheese. Bake, uncovered, an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
*I got this recipe from a Kraft Foods recipe and changed it just a hair for my family… we like more cheese than they called for and we love the 5-cheese mexi mix.
