Spicy Mac & Cheese
1 lb. hamburger
1 box macaroni & cheese dinner
1 cup V8 juice
1/2 package taco seasoning

Prepare the macaroni & cheese according to package
directions. In the meantime, fry the hamburger and rinse
in hot water to remove all the grease. Add the hamburger,
taco seasoning and tomato juice to the macaroni & cheese
and serve with a side salad.

From Family Circle & Kraft

Taco Mac & Cheese

1 lb ground beef
1/3 cup salsa (recipe calls for Taco Bell)
1 - 1/2 tsp chili powder
2 cups (8 oz) elbow macaroni, uncooked
1/2 lb (8 oz) Velvetta, cut up

Brown beef in skillet, drain. Stir in 2-3/4 cups water, salsa,
and chili powder. Bring to a boil; stir in macaroni. Cover; simmer 10 minutes or until water is almost absorbed. Add Velvetta; stir until melted. Top with crushed tortilla chips, chopped green onions and tomatoes if desired. Makes 6 servings.

So ok, I never follow directions! I used Ditalini macaroni because I was out of elbows. I also used Mexican Velvetta. I cut up onions and fried them with the ground beef. At the end I added some more salsa. Did not top with the tortillas, onions or tomatoes. It was very good, reminded me of goulash.

Macaroni and Cheese - Quick and Dirty

I really don't care for packaged foods but in a hurry.

Take one box of Kraft Dinner or look alike
Open and remove the dried cheese package
Fill the box to the top with macaroni any size
Place in boiling water for 8-10 minutes
Just the contents not the box
Add about 2 cups or more of frozen peas
Maybe some onions if you like them
Just before it starts to boil again
Drain and follow package instructions

This doubles the size of the servings, thins out the 'packaged' cheese, adds a nutritional vegetable.

*This is pretty cheezy and probably doesn't belong in a forum of great tasting recipes so do remove if you wish.
