Do you love cheeseburgers? I know I do! I too enjoy macaroni & cheese. They are extremely mouthwatering. However, I do realize that they are completely unhealthy, but you sometimes just have to splurge a little bit. You know what I mean? If you ever need a serious comfort food fix, then this Cheeseburger Macaroni is the right one for you. It has the perfect blend of all three into one.

 

I suggest having this dish on a lazy day in your pajamas while watching your favorite movie. 

 

Cheeseburger Macaroni 

Ingredients:

1-2 Tbsp. olive or coconut oil
1 lb lean hamburger meat
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 (10 oz) can Rotel tomatoes and green chilies (or petite diced tomatoes)
2 C. beef broth (or water)
1 C. elbow macaroni

FOR THE CHEESE SAUCE:
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
3/4 cup milk
1 C. shredded cheddar cheese
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Directions:

Turn your stove on medium heat and pour a few drops of oil into a large skillet. Next, place hamburger meat into the skillet. Cook until it's no longer pink and drain. Put meat in a medium/large pot and add taco seasoning, Rotel, beef broth, and macaroni. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and cover pan. Simmer twelve- fourteen minutes until macaroni is tender.

 

FOR THE CHEESE SAUCE

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Whisk in the flour and cook, whisking for 5 minutes until fragrant and light brown in color. Whisk in the milk and bring to a boil. Whisk until smooth and thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the shredded cheddar cheese until melted. Add the salt and pepper to the cheese sauce. Pour the cheese sauce over the hamburger mixture. Stir gently to combine.
