Taco Mac

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

I really like one dish skillet meals. They’re easy, quick and yummy. And they remind me of those Hamburger Helper meals I used to love back in the day. (Yes, I’ve come a long way in the kitchen.)

I used to make dishes like this by boiling the noodles separately. Then I gleaned some wisdom from my friend Sonshine and realized I could boil the noodles in the skillet if I added more liquid, just like those Hamburger Helper meals. It works great!

    This is a keeper! So quick and easy and the whole family loved it. Wasn’t too spicy for my 1 and 3 year olds. Will make again!

  5. I love this dish. But how do you freeze half of it without ruining the macaroni? When I thaw cooked macaroni, it’s always so mushy.

    Love this meal – a real kid pleaser!

    If I throw all the ingredients together and put it in a dish could it be frozen, then thawed and baked? I want to make this for my freezer club and did not know if I would need to make it first as direct, then freeze and reheat. THANKS!

    to me. Anyhow, I’m certainly delighted I found it and I’ll be
    book-marking it and checking back often!

    on the topic of my presentation topic, which i am going to present in university.

  13. So to paint the exterior of your 1500 square foot home
    you can expect to pay at least $3250. However this same paint should not be used on the concrete foundation since it will likely crack and
    peel away over the years. Make it a point to always choose colors well for your
    house.
