Now, I realize this is not from scratch, but it sure was easy to throw together and really tasty to the kids. No one complained about supper this night!

The Menu:
Taco Bake


The Original Recipe:
This came from Babycenter... where I get most of my recipes, if you haven't figured that out by now! I like going there becasue of the variety of recipes they share, and the ability to change them into something my family likes!


Taco Bake
1 (14 ounce) package kraft macaroni & cheese dinner mix
1 lb ground beef
1 package taco bell home originals taco seasoning mix
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup breakstone or knudsen sour cream
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 cup Taco Bell Home Originals thick 'n chunky salsa

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare dinner as directed on package. While macaroni is cooking, brown meat and drain. Add taco seasoning mix and water to the meat; simmer 5 minutes. Stir sour cream into prepared dinner. Spoon half of the dinner mixture into 8-inch square baking dish; top with layers of the meat mixture, 1 cup of the cheese and remaining dinner mixture. Cover. Bake 15 minute. Top with salsa and remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake, uncovered, an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
