cheeseburger macaroni

I spent a whole class trying to figure out what to make for supper last night when I finally remembered about a recipe i wanted to try. It was previously mentioned on the blog but it was something that sounded good, was easy and that we had most of the ingredients for already. I’ll repost the recipe because I left the salt out when i made it and it was good (or at least i didn’t think it needed more salt).

1 lb lean hamburger meat
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 can tomatoes and green chilies (or petite diced tomatoes)
2 cups beef broth (or water)
1 cup elbow macaroni

Brown and drain hamburger meat. Stir in taco seasoning, tomatoes, beef broth, and macaroni. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and cover pan. Simmer 12-14 mins until macaroni is tender.

Meanwhile, make the cheese sauceā€¦.

2 Tablespoons butter
2 tbsp flour
3/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp pepper

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Whisk in the flour and cook, whisking for 5 minutes until fragrant and light brown in colour. Whisk in the milk and bring to a boil. Whisk until smooth and thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the shredded cheddar cheese until melted. Add the pepper to the cheese sauce. Pour the cheese sauce over the hamburger mixture. Stir gently to combine.

I really liked it! and to make it better I added some pre-cooked bacon to it. Mmmm.
