Quick Fix Meal

Don't you just love quick fix meals!! I was rummaging through the pantry trying to figure out what to make for dinner when a quick fix recipe sort of popped into my head.  That's right, I guess you could say I made it up..... otherwise known as winging it.  I am sure there is a recipe out there similar to this, but this is straight from the brain of The Blogging Mom.  I am even going to make up a name for it right this very minute.  It's going to be called JIFFY®Cheesy Taco, and I thought it turned out pretty yummy so I wanted to share the recipe.  Enjoy!


2 boxes of JIFFY corn muffin mix - will need milk and 2 eggs for recipe
1 package of Kraft Home style Mac and Cheese- will need butter and milk for recipe
1 pound of ground beef
1 pack taco seasoning
Shredded mild cheddar cheese- about 2 cups, more if you like it really cheesy


Brown the ground beef.  Add the taco seasoning mix as directed on the package.  You will also follow the directions to make the mac and cheese, but you won't use the bread crumb topping.  Once the meat is seasoned and the mac and cheese is made, mix them together. Mix the corn muffin mix as directed on box. Once mixed, pour half of the batter into a greased baking pan.  Next, spread the meat/noodle mixture on top of the batter.  Spread a layer of shredded mild cheddar cheese. Pour the rest of the corn muffin batter on top of the cheese. It doesn't have to cover the entire top.  Bake at about 300 degrees for about 15 minutes.
