  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add macaroni, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain.
  2. While the macaroni is cooking, crumble the ground beef into a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, and cook and stir until browned. Drain off the grease. Reduce the heat to medium, and mix in the corn, tomatoes, cheese and cooked noodles. Cook, stirring gently, until bubbly.

This stuff is really good. I didn't use the tomatoes and green chiles (instead used salsa...all I had on hand). We had this rolled in fresh soft tortillas and had a feast. I used pulled beef instead of ground which I know made a difference, but I will definately be making again. Easy dip for parties and company. Thanks for the post.

Cooked it for our "family night", was a hit with the boys, and very easy and cheesy.

Used salsa, Cuban seasoning, whole wheat macaroni, and it was creamy and tasty.

I made this the other night on my own not realizing this recipe was out there. I added chopped green pepper and minced garlic. Great dinner and awesome leftovers for lunch.

My family loved this! Even my husband who is from Mexico! I used the mexican velvetta rather than plain and that added just the right amount of spice.

Needed something quick for dinner and ran across this recipe. I didn't have an onion or any corn on hand. And I used a can of diced tomatoes that were a "zesty chili" style with onion powder and green chiles in it. My boys loved it, especially with a big spoon full of sour cream on top.

This was a big hit for a quick week night meal. I used a shredded cheese, it's what I had in the fridge. Came out great!
