  • 23 cup water
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar mild salsa (i prefer taco bell)
  • 23 cup Mexican blend cheese (more if desired)

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, drain.
  2. Brown ground beef in large skillet; drain.
  3. Return to skillet; add taco seasoning and water.
  4. Cook and stir until water is absorbed.
  5. Add pasta.
  6. Blend in salsa until pasta is covered.
  7. Sprinkle cheese over top.
  8. Cover and let sit until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
