Hey there everyone!  I came up with this tonight for dinner and thought I'd share the recipe.  Hubby and I both love Mexican food but eventually you get sick of the same old same old, so I threw some stuff together.  We thought it was pretty good.


Mexican Mac & Cheese

1 pound (or close to it) ground lean hamburger
1 package of taco seasoning
1 box of pasta (I used shells because that's what I had)
1 jar of salsa con queso
1 medium size can of black beans
about 3/4 of a cup of frozen corn

Brown the hamburger and add the taco seasoning and water as called for on the back of the package.  Meanwhile boil the pasta until it's done.  In a colander drain the black beans and put the corn on top of the beans.  Then dump the pasta on top to drain it and heat up the beans and corn.  Put the pasta/beans/corn mixture back into the pasta pot and add the salsa con queso.  Mix in the hamburger and serve.  This made a LOT for hubby and I.  Looks like we're both having leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

Oooo....good idea.  I think my boyfriend would like this too, and it seems very filling.  also I love "dump" recipes where you can be creative. 
thanks!

I'm a vegetarian, but I'm going to pass this recipe along to my older sister.  She makes those boxed Mexican pasta dinners, but I bet your recipe would be 100 times better.  Thanks for posting this!

That sounds DELICIOUS. 

...Except I'm seeing ground turkey instead of beef.  ground red meats are not my friends.

Thanks guys!  For a more veggie friendly option you could probably just cook the black beans with the taco seasoning somehow.  Hubby says it's better the next day.  lol

so... I tried doing this tonight... but I made a super-spicy version with "hot" taco seasoning.  And I didn't have salsa con queso... so I used shredded cheese.  ...and I subbed turkey for ground beef...

But the end result was quite tasty.  Waaayyy too spicy, but tasty.  Methinks I'll be getting a jar of the salsa con queso, and some sour cream to take the bite off it, for tomorrow's supper.  (Being a poor college student, any day away from the cafeteria is a good day.)

So thank you for the awesome inspiration!
