My 2nd recipe using fairly cheap or food pantry obtained ingredients. Tried this tonight, it was quite good. Happened to be lucky enough to find ground chuck for $1.67/lb. at Woodman’s recently and had remaining ingredients on hand.
Spicy Hamburger Casserole
1 lb Hamburger Meat ($2/lb. buy price; Sussex Food Pantry usually has as a freezer item choice)
1 can Rotel Tomatoes with green chilies (knock off brand at aldi $.59 each as of Nov 13. Seen at food pantry sometimes)
1 box Velveeta Shells and Cheese (could substitute mac & cheese as a cheaper substitute probably or combine cheddar Ragu with shell pasta; I had this on hand from somewhere)
1/2 cup Shredded Cheese (I actually omitted this and it is still good)
1 pkg Taco Seasoning
Brown hamburger meat.
Cook macaroni while meat is browning.
Drain meat and add taco seasoning like it says on seasoning package.
Let cook for about 4 to 5 minutes.
Add rotel tomatoes and macaroni. Add cheese packet from velveeta cheesy shells or cheddar ragu or similar. Stir until well blended
