Macaroni And Taco Seasoning -- A Kid's Dream Dinner
When you ask kids what they want for dinner, nine times out of 10 you'll hear "mac and cheese," but if you're sick of those little boxes, add some ground turkey and taco seasoning for a whole new spin on a comfort food favorite.
One of my favorite comfort foods is macaroni and cheese. I don't mean the kind that comes in the box, I mean the thick and cheesy, homemade kind. However, since I don't always have a couple of hours to melt the butter and cheese, sometimes I have to resort to the box. It's quick and easy and actually kinda yummy...for being in a box. Being who I am, I never just use the ingredients in the box, I always add stuff to spice it up and make the mac and cheese just a little more interesting. Sometimes I add meat, sometimes I add vegetables, sometimes I add nothing at all. Well, this was not one of those nights.
Thanks to Taste of Home, I found a recipe that took that box of mac and cheese and completely turned it on its head. It was cheesy, meaty, spicy deliciousness all wrapped up in a casserole dish. And the best part? My son not only got his pasta fix, he got his meat and vegetables, too.
