This Cheeseburger Macaroni recipe is an easy option for a quick, hearty weeknight meal. You end up with a delicious mix of ground beef, pasta and spices all in a creamy homemade cheese sauce. But don’t let that scare you, it’s really simple to make. Let’s get started!
First you’ll need to brown some ground beef in a large skillet. Drain the fat and add a can of Rotel, beef broth, taco seasonings and uncooked elbow pasta. Let that simmer for about 15 minutes, until macaroni is tender.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan. Whisk in some flour and cook for about 5 minutes. Whisk in some milk and bring the mixture to a boil. Once thickened, remove from heat and stir in some shredded cheese and salt and pepper.
Pour that delicious cheese sauce into your cooked beef and macaroni mixture. Stir until everything is goldeny delicious.
The Rotel adds a bit of kick to this cheeseburger macaroni but it’s not overly spicy. If you or your family is not a fan of spicy, simply substitute a can of petite diced tomatoes for the Rotel.
Good stuff! Much better than anything boxed you’ll ever buy.
