Taco Bake

You'll never believe that this quick and easy casserole uses BOXED macaroni and cheese. This is another of my most requested recipes, and everyone is SHOCKED when I tell them the recipe. It's ridiculously easy.

Key Players:
1 pkg. (14 oz.) KRAFT Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. (1-1/4 oz.) Taco Seasoning Mix
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup Sour Cream
1-1/2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided (I like sharp cheddar, but any cheese will do)
1 cup Thick 'N Chunky Salsa (Any is fine, but spice it up with some HOT salsa if you like!)

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Prepare Dinner as directed on package. While Macaroni is cooking, brown meat; drain. Add taco seasoning mix and water to meat; simmer 5 min.

STIR sour cream into prepared Dinner. Spoon half of the Dinner mixture into 8-inch square or 9-inch round baking dish; top with layers of the meat mixture, 1 cup of the cheese and remaining Dinner mixture. Cover.

BAKE 15 min. Top with salsa and remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake, uncovered, an additional 5 min. or until cheese is melted.


  1. I Love this taco bake stuff!!! I ate so much of it once I almost pooped my pants!!!! it was worth it though....

  2. Thanks for your submission to this week's Carnival of Recipes. Dont' forget to link your post to the carnival at The Expatriate's Kitchen. Note, the carnival generally allows just one entry per person. I am posting all of the links, however. Be sure to link all these posts as well.

  3. I think evеrуthing typed waѕ very lоgіcal.

    Hoωever, thіnk on this, suppοѕe you were to writе
    a aweѕome tіtle? Ι am not saying your information iѕ not good.
    , however whаt if you added something to maybe grab ρeople's attention? I mean "Taco Bake" is kinda vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo'ѕ hοme page
    and see hоw they сгeаtе pоst hеaԁlineѕ to get people іnterested.
    You might adԁ a rеlatеd video or
    a гelаted pіcture οr twо to grab readers еxcitеd about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.
