TACO MAC 'N' CHEESE



Taco Mac 'n' Cheese image

Provided by James Briscione

Categories     main-dish

Time 35m

Yield 8 to 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients 15

2 pounds lean ground beef
Two 1-ounce packets taco seasoning
1 recipe Perfect Cheese Sauce, recipe follows
1 pound elbow macaroni, cooked
1/2 cup grated Cheddar
1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
1 cup diced tomato
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
3 cups milk, heated
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups grated sharp Cheddar
1/2 cup grated Parmesan

Steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Place a large saute pan over high heat, add the ground beef and taco seasoning, reserving 1 tablespoon of the mix for the Perfect Cheese Sauce. Mix thoroughly. Cook, stirring often using a wooden spoon or spatula to break the meat into small crumbles. Continue cooking until the meat releases its liquid, and then cook further until all the liquid has evaporated and the meat begins to brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Combine the Perfect Cheese Sauce and cooked pasta in a large bowl. Pour in the cooked meat and stir to combine. Pour into a 9- by 13-inch baking dish. Level the pasta with the back of a spoon or spatula. Scatter the grated Cheddar over the pasta. Bake until browned and bubbling, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove and let cool 5 minutes.
  • Immediately before serving, scatter the sour cream, lettuce and fresh tomato over the mac 'n' cheese.
  • Melt the butter in a medium saucepot over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring often, until a thick paste forms and turns golden brown. Stir in the taco seasoning and cook 30 seconds more.
  • Gradually whisk in the milk, adding 1 cup at a time. Allow the mixture to come to a simmer before adding the next. It will be extremely thick at first and will thin with each addition. When all the milk is added bring the sauce to a simmer and cook 5 more minutes. Whisk in the cream cheese.
  • Remove the sauce from the heat. Add the Cheddar and Parmesan and whisk until smooth. The sauce keeps refrigerated for up to 2 weeks or frozen for 6 months. If using from cold, carefully bring the sauce back to a boil before serving.

  • Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat; whisk in the flour and mustard powder and cook, whisking, 1 minute. Whisk in the evaporated milk and carrot puree; simmer, whisking, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheeses until melted. Add the pasta and stir to coat, adding the remaining cooking water as needed to loosen the sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Divide among bowls and top with the panko mixture.

BAKED, CRUNCHY-TOPPING, MAC N CHEESE



Baked, Crunchy-Topping, Mac N Cheese image

Not your everyday mac n cheese, this recipe is very rich. It is just a tad spicy with the red pepper and dijon mustard. Even with the little bit of spice it is still child friendly. And delicious! I grate my cheese (slowly at that!) so your prep time will be less if you used shredded-from-the-package cheese. You can use unsalted butter in the sauce. If you use regular butter but prefer less salt, then just cut back a bit on the salt listed in the ingredients.
