Easy Layered Taco Bake

So holiday parties are upon on us, I started thinking about the easiest thing I make to take to them.  You know you never want to go empty handed.  I don't have to look at a recipe anymore.  I didn't think you want to hear a pinch of this or a pinch of that.  With that in mind, I went to Kraft to get the directions.  This recipe is so good that even the helpless chefs like me can do it.  The other nice thing about this one is that my kids will eat it simply because it has macaroni and cheese in it.  The recipe is called Easy Layered Taco Bake.


1 pkg. (7-1/4 oz.) KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. (1.25 oz.) TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Taco Seasoning Mix
1 cup TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Thick 'N Chunky Mild Salsa

Directions on how to make it:
  1. Heat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Prepare macaroni and cheese dinner as directed on package.
  3. Cook meat with taco seasoning.
  4. Layer seasoned meat, dinner and salsa in 8-inch square baking dish.
  5. Bake 20 minutes.
And its finished.

Now I do recommend that you cover the dish with aluminum foil while it is baking.  I, also, use that same foil to take it with me.
