Quick and easy - kid pleasing - one dish dinner. Like nacho dip on noodles. Could cut the cheddar to reduce fat. Also could add a can of Mexican spiced tomatoes and reduce or omit the water.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) envelope taco seasoning mix
  • 12 cup water
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can corn, drained (use type with diced peppers)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (chive and onion flavor)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 ounces egg noodles, cooked and drained


  1. Cook onions and ground beef in large saute pan until beef is browned. Drain fat. Add taco seasoning, water and corn to beef mixture in pan; cook 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add cream cheese and cheddar; cook until it heated through and cheese melts.
  3. Serve over noodles or toss with noodles.

Pretty good as is. Used salsa + half amount of water second time. Much better. Added sliced jalapeno to my plate (dd is chicken). Didn't measure cheddar, just used a bunch.

We enjoyed this easy, delicious dinner. My 4-yr old was happy that she could help cook, too. The only change I made was to use sour cream instead of cream cheese.

OMG! This is soooo good! I saw this on Pinterest and just had to make it! I added a chopped red bell pepper to the onion, and swapped the water for milk. I used the four cheese Mexican blend instead of cheddar as well. I will definitely make this again. I'm pretty sure this is my new addiction.
