This is a very easy and delicious recipe. I make it often. I don't agree with some of the other raters who say that the pasta is bland; I think it is great, and the taco seasoning is enough for me. The only thing I wold suggest is to add two tablespoons of sour cream to both layers of the macaroni and cheese. This is a VERY VERY easy recipe that will please most people.
A few changes were made to this recipe. It wasn't spicy enough. I made the macaroni instead of using the frozen. I used all of the taco seasoning and used jalapeno pepper juice instead of water for the taco seasoning preparation. To make it more spicier I will ad cayenne pepper to the mix next time. My husband said that It was the perfect meal for those times when you cant figure out just what you want.
THIS DISH WAS FAST, EASY, AND GREAT MY FAMILY AND FREINDS CANT GET ENOUGH IT.
I only rated this 4 stars because it's very easy to make and my kids love it... but I thought it lacked flavor. Since I always make mac'n'cheese from scratch with whole wheat pasta, my first attempt was a bit dry - will sauce it up more next time. Will also take other's suggestions to add some tomato sauce to the meat mixture as well as more spice. All in all a very good recipe. Thanks!
I used Fritos in place of the tortilla chips the first time I made this and we prefer them now.
This recipe was not bad but not great either. The pasta was a bit bland and there wasn't really enough flavor from the rest of the ingredients to save it. If I make this again I will be using a lot more seasonings. My 2 year old just ate the mac n' cheese part.
This is a wonderful dish. My 3 year old loves it as do my husband and myself.
My picky kids loved this easy casserole! Although I added 1 lb. of ground beef instead of just a 1/2 lb. It just didn't seem enough. I also used 2 T. sour cream in each layer of macaroni as suggested by another member. I had to use crushed potato chips instead of tortilla chips because that was what I had on hand. I think this one is pretty failproof. Quick, easy and kid-friendly. Great for weeknights! Thanks!
