I gave this recipe a 4 star rating since I added so many items to it. First I used elbow mac as I didn't have any shells on hand. I added about a 1/2 cup chopped onion when browning the meat. As I used about 1-1/2 lbs meat I added additional chili powder, garlic powder, cumin and cayenne pepper when I added the taco seasoning. I then dumped in a can of Rotel tomatoes to the meat mixture. To make this more of a one-dish meal I drained a can of corn and dumped it in as well. Sprinkled the top with a little cheddar cheese before baking at 350 for about 15 minutes. My family liked it and I loved the fact that it was simple and quick.

This was very easy and it was ok, I will make it again but will add something? I don't know what, it just seemed to need something for us. I added green chillis,but still needed something. Thanks,always looking for new easy meals

I kind of cheated, but I think the end result was relatively unaffected. I used 1.25 lbs ground beef (because it is impossible to find a 1lb package in the stores here) and the family sized Velveeta shells and cheese. DH liked the suggestion of shredded cheddar on top and I think some sour cream would be a nice addition. Tastes great and couldn't have been easier!

Great recipe and the kids just loved it too! I used Taco Seasoning Blend for the taco seasoning and followed everything else as written. I did sprinkle some grated cheese on top before serving. This tastes a bit like the boxed hamburger helper meals, but this is much cheaper. Thanks for posting.

Very easy and very good! The whole family enjoyed this and it was something different to do with ground beef. I served with a salad. I did not bake it, but next time may sprinkle with some cheddar cheese and bake for a few minutes. Thanks for sharing!
