Got this from my Canadian parenting site. A simple kid pleaser
- 2 (229 g) packages Kraft macaroni and cheese
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 tablespoons low-fat milk
- 1 lb lean hamburger
- 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning
- 1 cup salsa
- Cook Kraft Dinner according to package directions, including butter and milk.
- Meanwhile borwn hamburger.
- Add taco seasoning.
- Mix hamburger into Kraft Dinner.
- Stir in salsa.
Like Charlotte J, I was also a little confused on the directions. I followed what she did and omitted the additional milk/butter from the directions on the box. I cooked the macaroni, added the 1 T butter, 2 T milk, and cheese sauce packets to meat mixture, and then added the plain macaroni to the meat mixture to heat through. This worked very well!
I used Penzey's spice blends for the taco seasoning (2 T. Bold Taco mix 1 T. Arizona Dreaming). For the salsa, I used Black Bean and Corn salsa. I also added some additional frozen corn. Next time I will probably add a can of black beans too. At the end, I poured everything into a greased baking dish, topped with shredded cheddar cheese, and baked in a 350 degree oven until the cheese melted.
Quick, easy, and a tasty dish that can be made with some of my home's staples! Thanks for sharing!
This was excellent. Very quick andeasy. Thanks
Wow, this was really easy to make and so good. In step 1, I was not sure if I was to add the milk and butter as the package stated. I decided not to, as I could always add it in later. After putting the macaroni in the boiling water, I cooked the meat. Then I added the 1T butter/2T milk, Pace Picante Sauce, 2 packets of cheese and taco seasoning to the meat reheating it again. This worked very well to get the 3 packets of dry ingredients mixed in. All that was left was to stir in the macaroni and serve. I will be making this again. Thanks you Sam #3 for posting it and Boomette's for recommending this recipe. Made for I RECOMMEND TAG MAY-JUNE game
