Crockpot Taco Bake
1 lb. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
3/4 C water (I used 1/2 C )
1 pkg. (1 1/4 oz.) taco seasoning
1 15 oz. can tomato sauce (I used 1 can rotel and a small can tomato paste)
2 cans (8 oz each) tomato sauce
1 pkg. (8 oz.) shell macaroni, uncooked (I used elbow, uncooked.)
1 4 oz. can chopped mild green chilies (omitted due to Rotel)
2 C shredded cheddar cheese (I would have liked a bit less--maybe 1.5 C)
Brown ground beef and onion in skillet. Drain fat. Add the water, taco seasoning
and tomato sauce; mix. Simmer for 20 minutes (I didn't). Transfer to crockpot.
Stir in macaroni and chopped green chilies.
Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high 3-4 hours. (Mine cooked in 2 1/2
hours on high, since the meat was already cooked.) In the last 30 minutes of
cooking, top with cheddar cheese.
