Fiesta Macaroni & Cheese

If you love macaroni and cheese, you will LOVE this dish! You can either bake it in the oven at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or make it as a skillet meal. If you do decide to bake it, I would layer all of the ingredients without mixing, and undercook the pasta by about 7 minutes. I have done it both ways, but today's recipe will show the skillet version- it's super quick and easy!

One box Kraft Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese (looks like this)
One can Rotel (I use mild)
One can Sweet Whole Kernel Corn, drained
1 lb. ground beef or ground turkey
1 packet taco seasoning
1/2 cup cheese (cheddar or mexican blend)
1/2 cup sour cream

Cook macaroni according to package. Add sour cream to the macaroni after the cheese has been mixed. In a separate pan, brown meat and drain. Return to pan. Add taco seasoning and enough water to mix the seasoning with the meat. Simmer on low until excess water is absorbed. Add rotel, corn, and cheese to meat and mix. Combine macaroni and cheese with meat and mix until well blended.
