Made this up as I went along, after being inspired from a few posts on Pinterest that Mr. Meatatarian deemed to have “too many chunks”
1 box Kraft mac and cheese (mine happened to be spirals)
2 T butter/margarine/butter spread/butter-like-product (or so, I didn’t really measure)
3 T milk (or so, I didn’t really measure)
1 lb ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
shredded cheddar cheese
Boil the noodles as directed on the box.
Brown the ground beef and add the taco seasoning pack and a couple spoonfuls of the pasta water.
In a separate bowl, combine the butter, milk, cheese packet, and seasoned ground beef. When the pasta is done, drain it and add it to the ground beef mixture. Stir in shredded cheddar to taste.
I think this would also benefit from some guacamole and salsa served alongside, but Mr. Meatatarian disagrees.
