  1. In large skillet over medium-high heat, cook and crumble ground beef and Garlic Pepper Seasoning until cooked through and no longer pink; drain off liquid.
  2. Add tomato sauce, Simply Salsa Mix and chili powder; simmer 5 minutes. Stir in macaroni, milk and water. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat; simmer 11-13 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until noodles are cooked.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Salt and pepper as desired. Serve immediately. Sauce will continue to thicken upon standing.

Makes 6 servings. Serve garnished with desired taco toppings such as diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sliced black olives, sour cream.

Make ahead & freeze: Combine first 2 ingredients in a gallon freezer bag. Combine next 3 ingredients in a quart freezer bag. Place both bags in a gallon freezer bag. Seal well, label and freeze. Thaw completely. Continue with step 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy and tasty I put too much pasta in it but it was still tasty and my teen son really liked it. Easy to make, one pot meal was a teensy bit spicy for me but my family loved it and with a little lettuce and sour cream it was perfect for me, too!
