Taco Mac

This was another quick, easy and husband satisfying meal. It is one of those meals you can throw together with basic staples you have in your pantry. I was kind of worried about the point value since the original recipe stated it served 4, but as you can tell from the picture that would be some large servings! I measured it out to be 8 1 cup servings which comes to only 7 points a serving! I served this with a side salad for a filling meal.

Taco Mac


1 pound Ground Beef
1 can Diced Tomatoes (15 Ounce Can)
1 cup Frozen Corn
1 package Taco Seasoning (1 Ounce Package)
2 cups Uncooked Pasta (I Used elbow macaroni)
2 ¼ cups Hot Water
2 cups Shredded Taco Or Mexican Flavored Cheese

Cook ground beef in big skillet over medium-high heat until browned. Drain if necessary.

Add tomatoes, corn, taco seasoning, pasta and water. Stir together and bring to a boil. Stir once more, cover and turn down to medium-low heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender.

Turn off heat and add 1 cup cheese and stir. Serve sprinkled with remaining cheese.
