Taco Mac

I spent almost 8 years managing a gourmet  and kitchenware store.  I've loved cooking all of my life, read Julia Childs' books like they were the Bible.  I spend a serious amount of time cooking, entertaining, trying to new recipes.  And what is my child's all-time favorite meal???  Taco Mac.  As in three ingredients.  Ground beef, macaroni and taco sauce.  It has been her meal of choice since she was a toddler.  When she was little, she seriously thought I was the best cook and best mom in the world when I made it.  As she got older, she started making it herself.  And she still loves it.  It's so easy it's embarrassing.  It was the last "home-cooked" meal I made for her when she left for college. She requests it every time she's home on a break.   It is pretty good, and it's so simple you can prepare it on a week night when you're in a real hurry.  I hope you enjoy it half as much as Little Devil does!
