This Taco Mac Casserole is a total family favorite dinner! Taco beef, a box of macaroni and cheese, salsa, and cheddar - this is one recipe you're going to make again and again!
This Taco Mac Casserole recipe first appeared here on Mostly Homemade Mom over five years ago - and it's become of of the most viewed recipes of all time! Many of you have emailed and messaged me over the years letting me know that this is now a regular family dinner in your home and I'm so happy. It's still a regular on our dinner rotation menu as well! Enjoy the updated photos and easily pinnable graphic at the bottom of this post. Put this one on your menu plan this week, you won't be sorry!
This casserole is something I've been making since we were first married. It makes a lot, it's filling, and it's cheap. Not to mention that every time I make it, Paul announces it's his favorite meal! I believe one of my relatives/friends gave this recipe to me at my bridal shower. Either way, this one's definitely a keeper for us.

I honestly LOVE how this takes one box of macaroni and cheese and one pound of ground beef and it makes PLENTY for an entire family. Just a word to the wise, DO NOT take a bite of that macaroni and cheese with sour cream. You will most likely eat the entire thing and have to make another batch for the recipe, it's that good! :)
