My sil was coming over and my refrigerator was bare. So the next stop was to look in the pantry. I had pasta, tuna, some French's Onion rings, spices , cream of chicken soup and can of peas; I was hoping for corn.
I put it all together and it was delicious! Just a little left for tomorrow's lunch.

How to Make Taco Tuna Macaroni


  1. Cook macaroni in boiling water for 8 minutes. Drain and place in a large bowl( I used my mixer bowl) and squeeze 1/2 of a lemon over the pasta .Mix to coat.
    Heat oven to 350^.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix to blend. Do not drain the peas (or corn If you are using that-which I prefer) but use use what you have.Use the taco mix straight from the package.Don't add any salt as there is enough in all the other ingredients.
  3. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish and pour the mixture into the dish and spread evenly.
    Top with the onion rings and cheese.
    Bake for 45 minutes , until bubbly and cheese has melted.Remove from oven add 1/2 cup more cheese over top and let set for 5 minutes. Then Enjoy!
