Easy...cheap...not the HEALTHIEST..but soo yummy

Okay I promised In a post awhile back that I would start sharing some cheap healthy recipes. This first one I will confess is not the HEALTHIEST one...but It's our favorite. I think it's cheap to make and it makes a lot...enough for leftovers, and I am ALL about leftovers!



"Melissa's Taco Bake" (My kids named it...wow..to have a taco bake named after you...i feel so special...lol)



1 14 oz box of the ever so famous Kraft Mac and Cheese

1 pound of lean ground hamburger

1 package of taco seasoning

3/4 cup of sour cream

1 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup of salsa



Okay....so I am sure it does not take a genius to see where this recipe is going!! You prepare the mac and cheese. Brown the hamburger then add the taco seasoning to the hamburger. Stir the sour cream into the mac and cheese.Spoon half of the mac and cheese mixture into a baking pan, then put a layer of the meat mixture with some of the grated cheddar cheese on top of the mac and cheese...then.... yes...you guessed it....top the hamburger with the remaining mac and cheese mixture. Pop it in the oven COVERED for for 15 min at 400 degrees. The last 5 min....uncover and pour the salsa over top....and the rest of the grated cheddar cheese!!!



So ya....that's one of our favorite meals around here!! Sometimes I even buy some taco shells and we scoop up the dinner and eat it in a taco!!



Have a wonderful day everyone!!!
