Taco Mac Casserole
This Taco Mac Casserole is a family favorite and sure to please any picky eater. Made with seasoned ground beef, salsa, and coated in cream cheese. I grew up eating this, and your family can enjoy it out! It's way better this way than from a box!
- 10 oz Macaroni noodles
- 1 pound Ground beef
- ¼ cup Diced onion
- 1 tablespoon Minced garlic
- 1 cup Salsa
- 1 oz Taco seasoning
- 8 oz Cream cheese
- 1 cup Shredded taco blend cheese
Preheat oven for 375 degrees F. Prepare a casserole dish with non stick cooking spray and set aside.
Start by cooking your macaroni according to the box directions. Strain, return to pot, and set aside.
Cook and crumble ground beef. Drain fat and add onions and garlic. Cook until onions until translucent. Add taco seasoning and salsa and mix well.
Add ground beef mix to noodles and place back on low heat. Add cream cheese and ½ cup shredded cheese and mix until melted and well combined. Add this to your casserole dish.
Add remaining ½ cup cheese to the top of the casserole and bake for 15-20 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy.
- Tip: Make sure the noodles are cooked al dente, as they will be added to the skillet later.
