Really, it's pretty much like homemade hamburger helper, but hey, hamburger helper can be pretty tasty, right?
I like how this version has salsa and cheese in it...yummy!
Beef and Cheese Macaroni
1 lb lean ground beef
2 cups chunky salsa
2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
8 oz process cheese spread (like Velveeta)
Brown meat in a large skillet; drain.
Add salsa and 1 3/4 cups water. Bring to a boil and then add macaroni. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook 8 minutes or until pasta is just tender.
While pasta is cooking, cut cheese into small cubes. Add to skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until melted.
makes 6 servings.
