Cheeseburger Macaroni

Cheeseburger Macaroni

Cheeseburger Macaroni is another one of our favorite weeknight dinners. It’s beefy. It’s cheesy. It’s incredibly delicious and it whips up in less than 20 minutes. There is nothing I don’t love about this recipe!

Lawry’s makes seasoned pepper? Where has that been all my life? This whole thing looks so yummy!

Oh why must you tease me so!? I was totally going to make this until I saw the sodium is what is recommended for one day. If I didn’t bloat up like a Macy’s balloon… Hmm. Okay, I could totally sub out the taco seasoning for my own salt free stuff…cumin, chili powder, red pepper flakes, white pepper, etc. Whole wheat macaroni to bump fiber up. Half water and half low sodium broth or all water. I don’t skimp on cheese so that would stay the same. I might just make it after all! LOL (Like how I talked myself into that?)

I made something similar to this the other night, but this looks a lot creamier and something my daughter have enjoyed more. This is right up my hubby’s alley. Thanks for posting. I’ll have to try it out soon!

I <3 your blog!

Just letting you know I'm making your banana cupcakes with pb frosting AGAIN this weekend for my baby's 2nd bday. I'm also going to try lemon cupcakes using the same recipe as the banana, except substituting lemon pudding. Wish me luck! :)

P.S. I'd love your input on what frosting would be good with lemon cake???

Personally, I’d love a lavender buttercream. :) Or maybe a blueberry buttercream frosting. Happy 2nd Birthday to your baby! :)

I ran to the store and got the ingredients for this as soon as I saw it. I hate to admit that my family loves Hamburger Helper but I hate serving them that stuff. I like that this is homemade and it sounds like it has a little kick too. I love Rotel. Now that we have two boys in baseball with practice 4 days a week, I’m looking for yummy, homemade recipes that I can throw together quickly when we get home. Thanks for dinner Amanda!

My husband and I enjoyed this for supper tonight! Delicious! He’s in the AirForce and it reminded him of one of his favorite MRE’s (Meal Ready to Eat), ChilliMac. (This did weird me out that a “MRE” could be good, but he loved it!)
Thanks for all the great recipes!!

I just wanted to let you know I made this for dinner last night. My husband occasionally waxes poetic about “Chili Mac”. I myself had never had it. His approximation on how to make it is ’1 box prepared mac and cheese mixed with a can of hormel chili’.. . . um. . .ewwww. I tried to make it once for him using prepared boxed mac and cheese but substituting a can of diced tomatoes and some ground beef and chili powder. It was, in my opinion, disgusting! I couldn’t eat it! So last night I made your version here. It was so much better! He loved it and we even heated up left overs for lunch today! Thanks!

I think I am going to try this recipe! I am allergic to cheese but I found a vegan cheese that melts really well and isn’t half bad.

Thanks for sharing!

I’ve been away from your website for a while, look at what I’ve been missing. The mac ‘n cheese looks really yummy. Your little dogs are really cute. They look like they live the good life. Take care, HW

Hi,
I made this tonight according to your directions and I had so much liquid when all was said and done, I had to drain some of it off. It wasn’t all creamy and yummy like your photo! What can I do to get it to look like yours (: It was still tasty but the extra liquid was puzzling.
Thanks!

Hey, I made this recipe a few weeks ago and wanted to make it again but now I can’t view it. The link on the page just redirects me to the same page with the same link for the recipe. It’s a useless loop, thought you might like to know.
