Texas Taco Casserole
This is seriously one of my favorite dishes to make!! I just made it last night, and everybody was begging for another bowl even though we were all stuffed! It's super easy to make, but it does make a lot!!
1 lb ground beef
2 packets taco seasoning mix
1 can ranch style beans (or chili beans), undrained
1 can corn , drained
1 32 oz box macaroni noodles
16 oz cubed Velveeta (1/2 block, and I use the generic version)
1/3 cup milk
Start off by getting water boiling for macaroni in a large pot and cook noodles to directions. Drain and set aside.
While noodles are cooking, brown ground beef in a smaller saucepan and drain when done. Add both taco seasonings and the needed water as the seasoning directions say. Simmer for about 10 minutes and then add beans and corn.
In the noodles pot, add the cheese and milk and melt until nice and creamy. If it's too thick, add a tad more milk, but don't overdo it! Stir in noodles until well coated in cheese mixture. Add the meat mixture to noodles and mix well.
Serve with crushed tortilla chips on top for best results,and be ready for everybody to be howling for seconds!!

I always think things like this always taste better the next day and are great leftovers. I havent made this version, it looks quite good. I like how it stretches using macaroni noodles.
