Geof is sick and could not go to work today. They say to feed a cold, so I thought I would make some good old comfort food. This delicious recipe came from You’re Talking Gibberish. I also made some cornbread to go along with our meal.
Here it is:
Velveeta Nacho Bake
Prep Time: 15 min Total Time: 35 min Makes: 6 servings
1 pkg. (12 oz.) VELVEETA Shells & Cheese Dinner
1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. (1-1/4 oz.) TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Taco Seasoning Mix (I used one of the many homemade recipes out there)
3/4 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
3/4 cup KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
3/4 cup TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Thick 'N Chunky Salsa
1/2 cup coarsely crushed tortilla chips
Heat oven to 400°F. Prepare Dinner as directed on package. While Macaroni is cooking, cook meat with taco seasoning as directed on package.
Stir sour cream into prepared Dinner. Spoon 1/2 of Dinner mixture into 8-inch square baking dish; top with layers of meat mixture, 1/2 of Cheddar and remaining Dinner mixture. Cover.
Bake 15 min.; top with salsa, remaining Cheddar and crushed chips. Bake, uncovered, 5 min.
I ended up using an 11x7 pan since I don’t own an 8” square baking dish. It turned out fine and we have plenty of leftovers.
