  1. Cook the ground beef and onion into a large skillet over medium heat until browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Break the meat apart as it cooks. Drain the excess grease.
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the macaroni, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  3. Add the macaroni to the the beef and onion and place over medium-low heat; stir in the processed cheese until melted, about 3 minutes. Add the salsa, pinto beans, and corn to the mixture; stir and heat until the mixture bubbles slightly, another 5 minutes.

This was a quick and easy dish, just what I was looking for tonight. I made one change: instead of salsa and Velveeta, I added 3/4 of a jar of 23oz Tostito's queso dip. My 13 month old ate it ...

This dish was wonderful! I had all the neighborhood kids come over to ask for some! I omitted the corn (not a corn lover) and added more cheese. Then I garnished it with sour cream, cheese, guac...

I made this for dinner tonight and it was wonderful. I scaled it down to 3 servings and added 2 Tblsp taco seasoning mix only because we like spicy. This is a keeper. I used American cheese o...

This is a great recipe! It is one of the few recipes that my entire family will eat. I don't always keep Velveeta on hand, so I have used cream cheese and a bit of shredded cheddar in place. Sti...

we used the "all-in-one-pot" method with tostitos queso and beef broth...tasty...a little too much kick for the younger ones...

I don't think the name goulash quite fit this dish but it had a nice little kick to it from the salsa and it was a hit with the family. Made lots for leftovers.

Enjoyed this one. The only change I made was use grated cheddar and mozerlla chesse. We do not like processed cheese.

Very good, almost a one-pot complete meal. Kid-friendly, too. I made this with gluten-free pasta. I used a prepackaged shredded Mexican cheese blend instead of the Velveeta, and threw in some di...
