This Taco Macaroni Casserole has all the flavors of your favorite taco, beef, seasonings, salsa, sour cream – yep, it’s all in there. But then we mix it in to some macaroni noodles & then bake it like a casserole. Oh my word- it’s scrumptious.

Hi there The 36th Avenue fans! It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co. Are you ready for some comfort food? Today as I write this we are receiving nearly a foot of snow! So it’s cold, wet & all I want to do is get the fire going & not leave the house. It also means that I’m looking for a good hearty, comforting meal to feed these growing kids. Things like pasta & cheese come to mind when I want a filling dinner. So of course I came up with a delicious casserole that fit everything I was looking for. 

Now you can definitely just make, mix & eat this. It’s tastes great that way. But most of the time I like to pop it in the casserole dish, top with some cheese & bake for a bit. It really helps all those flavors come together. I guarantee, your family will absolutely LOVE this dinner recipe.
