Rick does all the grocery shopping in our house. So sometimes he shows up with some random buys that I wouldn't typically purchase. So Sunday he shows up with about 10 boxes of various mac & cheese boxes, including this one by Velveeta with Rotel.
When I saw this I thought, hmmm, this is interesting. What can I do with this to make it into a good meal. I happened to have ground turkey in the fridge that needed to be used. So I thought this could be interesting but it still needs something. Add some taco seasoning and we have a fun taco cheesy noodle dinner.
1 box Velveeta Shells & Cheese with Rotel
1 pound ground turkey/chicken/beef (we use turkey)
1 package taco seasoning
Make the shells & cheese as instructed on the box. Prepare the ground turkey with taco seasoning as instructed. Once shells & cheese are done and ground turkey with taco seasoning is complete, add ground turkey as you prefer. I only used about half the ground turkey mix to add to the shells & cheese so we had leftovers the next evening for tacos and I've been using a little in my salads each day for lunch.
So tasty, so easy and quick and it's now on rotation in our house.
