My son loves this...he'll eat it till it's gone...lol! It's a lot like Goulash...add condiments, such as sour cream, extra onions, jalapeno slices etc...

My son prefers it right from the pan, the way it is...you could serve it with a simple salad, and some crusty bread, and you'll have one tasty meal. Even better reheated.

Enjoy!

How to Make Tasty Taco Mac

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook your pasta as stated on box or bag, drain - don't rinse.
  2. In a large skillet, brown ground beef, peppers and onions, until beef is no longer pink, and veggies are soft. Drain
  3. Add 1 1/2 packages of taco seasoning and 1/2 cup water. Simmer for a few minutes. (You can add 2 whole packages of seasoning if you wish for more taco flavor. think 1 1/2 is just right.)

  5. Stir in your pasta.
  6. Sprinkle cheese evenly on top, cover and remain cooking until cheese is melted.
