This was a quick, easy, yummy recipe! Just the way I like them!! I think to make it even easier and a bit more flavorful, next time I'll used packaged taco seasoning instead of the chili powder, cumin, etc. I'll probably add a bit of sour cream and some shredded lettuce to the top of each serving as well just to make it more taco-y! Thanks for a great recipe! I know we'll be eating this often!

This is so easy and quick to put together and the flavors are outstanding. I only used about 10-12 oz of the elbow macaroni and that seemed to be plenty. Added some crushed red pepper flakes to spice it up a little and used Rotel tomatoes for the diced tomatoes. Made a nice combination. Thanks for sharing.
