I found this recipe over at Kevin & Amanda and it has quickly become one of our family's favorite meals- mostly because my kids devour it! It is easy to prepare- only takes about 20 minutes- and tastes amazing!

1 lb lean hamburger meat
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 can Rotel tomatoes and green chilies (or petite diced tomatoes)
2 cups beef broth (or water)
1 cup elbow macaroni
Brown and drain hamburger meat. Stir in taco seasoning, Rotel, beef broth, and macaroni. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and cover pan. Simmer 12-14 mins until macaroni is tender.

Meanwhile, make the cheese sauce….
2 Tablespoons butter
2 tbsp flour
3/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Whisk in the flour and cook, whisking for 5 minutes until fragrant and light brown in color. Whisk in the milk and bring to a boil. Whisk until smooth and thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the shredded cheddar cheese until melted. Add the salt and pepper to the cheese sauce. Pour the cheese sauce over the hamburger mixture. Stir gently to combine.
Serves 4.

    I found this recipe on Pinterest. We made it tonight–the only change was that we used 2 tablespoons of my homemade taco seasoning instead of the packaged kind. We all loved it–especially my husband! Thank you!

    I made this for dinner tonight. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the mild Rotel so I used the original. It was very spicy. Luckily my kids are older so they were still able to eat it, but we all agreed it would have been much better without that extra spice.
