Taco Mac Casserole

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.

Taco Mac Casserole

1lb ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
2/3 cup water
1 box macaroni and cheese
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup salsa

Brown ground beef in skillet, drain grease. Add taco seasoning and water and simmer until most liquid is absorbed.

Meanwhile, prepare macaroni and cheese according to box directions using the butter and milk. Stir in sour cream to the macaroni and cheese. Spread half of the macaroni and cheese on the bottom of a 2 quart baking dish. Top with meat and sprinkle 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Add second half of macaroni and cheese.

Cover and bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Remove foil and spread salsa over top. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheese over salsa. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
