1 (14 ounce) package
macaroni and cheese
extra-lean ground beef
1 (10 ounce) can
canned whole kernel corn
1 (6 ounce) can
1 (10 ounce) can

When making this i added and changed a few things. First i used a can of rotel to give it some spice and osme tomatoes i used 2 boxes of macaroni also added some garlic powder as well as onion powder there jsut wasnt enough onion taste for us.
i tarted this up a bit: i used a can of diced tomatoes with chilies instead of sauce and paste, i added diced red and green peppers and garlic, spiced it up with some oregano, chili powder, and hot sauce, and lastly shredded some cheddar cheese over the top. pretty tasty!
We're not big fans of canned corn so it was left out when we made this, but overall it wasn't too bad. Definitely an interesting way to make macaroni, and my picky boyfriend ate two helpings. Sort of convincing when I really got into it and started cooking in a cowboy hat and my old leather riding chaps xD. It was yummy.
Hmmm...ok but needed a bit more flavor. I think I will add a 1/2 t salt next time.
My husband really liked this recipe. I thought it was missing something (spices) but will make it again, adding cheddar cheese like someone else suggested.
I was intrigued by the combination of ingredients. However, this recipe did not live up to my expectations. It was heavy, bland and had an overpowering processed taste. I think there were too many ingredients that competed with each other with the tomatoes putting it over the top. Even the three year old "vacuum" didn't like it. Generally, the recipes here are very good, this just wasn't one of them. Thanks anyway.
One of my most favorite comfort foods. The great thing about a meal like this is it bends and stretches to feed whoever you have on hand. You can use half meat, half beans....half ground turkey, half ground beef.....half meat, half chopped veggies.....it's really up to you. Serious happy man/kid food. Even better with a piece of cheap white bread slathered with margerine in the side and a cup of Kool-Aid.
Everyone in the house loved this recipe. We will be adding it to our regular rotation! I didn't have a 10 oz can of corn or tomato sauce...they were both 15oz, but it added more flavor. Next time I might add more cheese.
