Low Fat Mexican Macaroni and Cheese

Total Time

Found this in a Weight Watcher's cookbook of recipes from the magazine in 2000. This is fast to make and has a nice flavour. Not a zingy dish, but the kids and I enjoyed it. 2/3 of a cup is 3 WW points.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil water for the macaroni. Cook the noodles in the water until done, usually 7-9 minutes.
  2. While the noodles are cooking cube the cheese.
  3. When the noodles are done drain them and then return to the pan.
  4. Add the cubed cheese and taco seasoning. Stir well, until the cheese is melted.
  5. When melted, add the salsa and serve.

This was very quick and easy and the taste of the salsa and seasoning was a nice addition, but we next time I may try adding in a few handfuls of shredded cheese just to get a cheesier texture.

Awesome mac and cheese! I used corkscrew pasta for this dish and it turned out very nice. Lots of flavor with the taco seasoning and homemade salsa. Very easy to make and fast as well. I used 8 ounces of light velveeta cheese. Made for "low in" or "Free of" challenge in the photo forum. Thanks Ladypit for another fantasic recipe.
