  • 1 Box Kraft Macaroni and Cheese (Blue Box)
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 Pound Hamburger
  • 1/2 Packet of Taco Seasoning
  • 1/3 Cup Water
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Shredded Taco Cheese
  • Chives


  1. Brown 1/2 pound of hamburger and drain.
  2. Add taco seasoning and approximately 1/3 cup water and stir.
  3. Prepare Kraft Macaroni and Cheese by the instructions on the box. After noodles are drained, add milk, butter, and cheese. You will notice in the recipe that I use half the amount of butter they call for in the standard macaroni and cheese recipe. This is just for personal taste.
  4. Combine the macaroni and cheese and hamburger mixture and stir.
  5. Place in bowl and top with shredded cheese, chives, and tortilla chips.


You can also add onions, lettuce, tomato, or salsa to this mixture as you like. Turn it into a dip by adding some taco sauce and serving with sour cream or guacamole.
