Taco Bake

Okay, gourmet food it isn't, but my family really likes it.  My husband doesn't normally like macaroni and cheese, but this version, dressed up with taco meat and salsa, makes for a yummy, kid-friendly, quick meal which he also enjoys.  Especially if, like me, you cook your taco meat up ahead of time.

Taco Bake

1 box macaroni & cheese dinner
1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning
3/4 c. sour cream
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 c. salsa

1.  Prepare mac & cheese according to directions on box.  Once completed, stir in sour cream.
2.  Meanwhile, brown ground beef, add taco seasoning according to directions.
3. Spray 2 qt baking dish with cooking spray.  Spoon in 1/2 of mac & cheese mixture.  Top with meat, 1 c. shredded cheese and remaining mac & cheese.
4.  Cover and bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
5.  Top with salsa and remaining cheese and bake uncovered fore 5 more minutes.
