Mexi Mac by Maggie

Maggie ^O^


We found a recipe one day that looked good and we tried it.

It was lacking .. so we made several adjustments and came up with our own version that, quite simply put, is scrumpdillyumptious !

It's easy and can all be one in 1 pot.

The blue box is for convenience only ... if you have your own awesome recipe for mac and cheese by all means use that !

It's quick and is a super dish to take to a pot luck.

It makes a lot.

We usually eat it alone but on those days when we are extra hungry a little green salad and a few tortilla chips make great go-alongs.

How to Make Mexi Mac by Maggie


  1. In a medium size pot brown the ground beef over medium heat.
  2. About half way through the browning process add the green peppers, red peppers, onions and taco seasoning.

    Continue cooking until the meat is done and the vegies are tender.

    Drain and place meat mixture in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Add water to the pot and bring to a boil.

    Drop the pasta from the mac and cheese into the boiling water and cook for 6 - 7 minutes.

    Follow the package instructions to complete the mac and cheese.
  4. When your mac and cheese is finished, stir the meat mixture, the green chilies, corn and salsa and warm through.
  5. Once your mixture is warmed through, serve in a bowl with a dollop of sour cream and some sliced black olives and chopped chives for garnish.
