Directions

  1. Heat a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Return skillet to heat. Stir salsa, taco seasoning mix, and black pepper into the beef; simmer the mixture until hot, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir water, macaroni, and milk into the beef mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, place a cover on the skillet, and simmer the mixture until the pasta is tender, about 10 minutes.
  4. Stir cheese food and Cheddar cheese into the pasta mixture; cook until the cheese melts completely, 5 to 7 minutes.

This was yummy, quick, and easy. I would have given it 5 stars but I couldn't since I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I just used 1 cup of salsa, which was plenty for us, and I didn't have Velveeta, so I just used about 2 C. shredded cheddar cheese. Since there was no milk measurement, so I left it out. It looked the Hamburger Helper Cheeseburger Macaroni (i think that was the name of it) we used to eat as kids, but this tastes way better since we used fresh ingredients. Thank you for the recipe!
