Taco Macaroni

This recipe is based on me trying to make something different based on something the family enjoys. I try to do this often, just to mix it up a little. So this is based on tacos. Which my lovely Kili said why can't we just have tacos? She likes what she likes, but once this was ready she cleared her plate! This came out good but I through it together quickly. In the future it will get some changing, but here it is for now.

1 pound ground beef
1/2 bag macaroni noodles, cooked
1 1/2 cups salsa
1 packet taco seasoning
1/2 onion, diced
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
3/4 cup water
2 teaspoons cumin
1 cup cheddar cheese

Make It:
Heat a large saucepan over medium heat, add meat and cook until completely browned, drain. Add onion to pan stir and cook until tender. Add taco seasoning and cumin to pan, stir to combine, stir in water and simmer for 5 minutes. Add salsa and beans to pot, stir to combine, simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in noodles, sprinkle with cheese. Turn heat to low and put on lid. Remove lid after 5 minutes, if cheese is not mostly melted put lid back on for a couple more minutes. Stir to coat mixture with melted cheese. Enjoy!
