Taco Bake

Taco Bake has two of the foods kids love most–tacos and macaroni and cheese–combined in one cheesy, family-friendly recipe.   I found this dish in a Kraft magazine years ago, and you can pretty much figure if it’s a name like Kraft, it’s going to be good.

And yep, Taco Bake IS good.  Really good.  In fact, it’ll excite your taste buds, make your tummy scream for more, make your mouth water and–

Well, you get the idea.

Filling, flavorful and easy to prepare, Taco Bake will become one of your go-to meals when you need something hot from the oven to the table in a reasonable amount of time.

If you can brown hamburger and boil water for macaroni, you can make Taco Bake.   Try it tonight!
