I just made this on a whim...why I have no idea but it was awesome and you can't tell a difference from the boxed stuff *yuck* It's soooo much cheaper to make it from scratch! I use Penzey's Taco seasoning but they advertise Old El Paso on the box so I assume that's what they use (could also use your own!). Also the noodles are an approximation since I kinda didn't pre-measure them I grabbed a couple of handfuls to fill up my skillet lol...same with the cheese, I had a half bag of "taco seasoned" shredded cheese left over and just threw it in there too. My husband didn't believe I made it from scratch! He was looking all over for the box haha
- Brown ground beef and cook with diced onions. After the beef is cooked drain and rinse.
- Put back in the pan and add and mix well the seasoning, milk, water and cheese let it come to a slight boil.
- Add the egg noodles, let the pan simmer for about 10 minutes until egg noodles are cooked and sauce has thickened.
- Now Enjoy! I guarantee no one will be able to tell the difference :).
