One Pot Taco Pasta
This tamale casserole is one of those slow cooker favorites that you'll find yourself making again and again! It's beyond easy and I'm sharing a special tip for making cornbread (or any type of bread/cake) in your slow cooker without it getting soggy.
Servings 4 servings
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 cup dry macaroni
- 1 cup hot water
- 2 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef in a 12 inch skillet over medium heat, crumbling it as it cooks. Drain grease.
Add the macaroni, water, milk, cornstarch, and taco seasoning to the skillet with the beef. Stir well.
Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cover. Cook for 12 minutes.
Remove from the heat, stir in the cheddar cheese, and cover for 2 minutes.
Stir well. Top with cilantro, diced tomato, and avocado before serving.
