    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    Make a whole meal of your box of mac and cheese with the addition of ground beef. This recipe makes it a slightly picante meal, too, by the addition of a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes.

    1. 1
      Make up the macaroni and cheese dinner as directed on the package.
    2. 2
      Brown ground sirloin over medium-high heat, breaking up the beef. Drain fat and add the can of tomatoes with chiles. Mix well. Lower heat to low and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    3. 3
      Add one-half of the beef mixture to the prepared macaroni and cheese. Add the remaining beef to a 2-quart baking dish, spreading evenly. Gently spoon the macaroni mixture evenly over the top. Sprinkle cheese over the top, if desired.
    4. 4
      Bake, uncovered, until hot and bubbly, about 20-25 minutes.
    5. 5
      Variation: Instead of layering part of the crumbled beef in the bottom of the baking dish, the entire amount may be added to the prepared macaroni and cheese. Stir to combine.
