Creamy Taco Mac


Sorry for being absent for so long – we’ve been on mandatory overtime at work so far this year and I’ve barely even had time to make us dinner let alone blog about it. Work should be calming down now so I hope to get back in the kitchen and back here.

This recipe is the perfect thing for a chilly winter night. It is easy to throw together, very filling, and very comforting. I will definitely be making this again.

Creamy Taco Mac

As seen on Lemons & Love Originally from delish

12 Ounces small pasta
1 1/4 Pounds ground meat (hamburger or turkey work)
1 Can tomato sauce
1 Can diced tomatoes
8 Ounces cream cheese
¼ Cup taco seasoning
Topping ideas: shredded cheese, sour cream, hot sauce

Bring salted water to a boil and cook pasta.

While pasta is cooking brown the meat and drain any grease. Then add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, cream cheese, and taco season to pan with meat. Let this simmer until the cream cheese is melted and the mixture is warmed. Stir occasionally while it cooks. Add pasta to the meat and sauce and mix well. You can top with shredded cheese, sour cream, or hot sauce.
