Nacho Mama's Mac & Cheese

Monday, March 23, 2009

This recipe takes one of the all-time favorite comfort foods of macaroni and cheese and zips it up a notch. My kids loved eating it almost as much as they loved saying the name. The ingredients:
3 cups spiral pasta (I used bow tie, since that's what I had)
1 pound ground beef (I used turkey instead)

2 sweet red peppers, chopped

1/4 cup butter, cubed

1/4 cup flour

1 envelope taco seasoning

1/4 tsp. pepper

2-1/4 cups milk

2 cups (8-oz.) shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup frozen corn, thawed

1 cup coarsely crushed tortilla chips

Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile cook meat and red peppers over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.

Stir in the butter, flour, taco seasoning until blended. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in cheese and corn until cheese is melted.

Drain noodles; add to meat mixture and stir to coat. Sprinkle with crushed tortilla chips. Makes 6 servings.

Enjoy!
