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!
