Mac n cheese Taco Bake!

Ever get too tired to cook? Ever been at your wits end because that silly toddler is being a stinker and not eating anything nutritious or otherwise? Despite planning and plotting and OAMC, this can still occur. In Fact, this happened to me last week. I was so tired. Baby DIVA was being her Royal Picky Highness, I was not really feeling all the kitchen creative juices that I usually feel and was a tad stumped for dinner. I thawed out some ground turkey meat, and then I pondered. Here is what I came up with:

Boil some water for a package of Mac and cheese.
Heat oven to 350.
Saute a bit of yellow onion and bell pepper, garlic, salt a pepper.
Dump hamburger meat ( I used ground turkey meat) in and brown, then drain and set aside.

Your mac and cheese should be just soft enough now and you can follow the instructions on the box to finalize the mac and cheese.

Dump about 1/2 mac and cheese into a casserole dish. Layer the meat mixture on top, then layer on crushed tortilla chips and shredded cheese (you pick what kind, we used cheddar and Monterrey jack). Repeat this process until all ingredients used making sure to end up with the last layer being tortilla chips and cheese.

Place in oven and bake for about 25 minutes.

Remove and serve with black olives and sour cream, if you please. Without is just as yummy.
Yum Yum!

Not so healthy, but super easy, toddler and husband friendly!
