Cheesy Taco Casserole

For this Tasty Tuesday I'm putting up a very simple taco casserole. My husband says it's scrum-diddly-umpcious! I'm assuming that means its good? Anyway here's the recipe hope you enjoy it!

What you'll need:

1lb gorund beef (turkey will be fine)

1 box Kraft deluxe mac & cheese

1 (16 oz) container sour cream (lowfat for fewer calories)

Salsa (your favorite brand)

1 pkg. taco seasoning mix

2 cups shredded chedder cheese (again lowfat is ok)

How to make it:

Brown ground beef , drain. Add the taco seasoning with about 1/4 cup of water. Cook until most of the water is gone. Cook the macaroni and cheese according to the directions on the box. Stir in half of the shredded cheese until melted. In a casserole dish, pour the macaroni in the bottom, spread the sour cream on top of the mac & cheese. Put the taco meat on top of the sour cream. Pour the salsa on top to the taco mixture. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Place it in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 20 monutes or until heated thoroughly.


I top mine with tomatoes, more sour cream, and taco sace by the bowl, not on the entire thing. I sometimes put onions, green pepper, lettuce, olives, really whatever you feel like thowing on it at the time! Also if you're feeling lazy, I sometimes just mix in the sour cream with the mac & cheese. It works just as good!

Play around with it, have fun! Cooking doesn't have to be a chore!
