This Texas Beefaroni recipe is basically Hamburger Helper on steroids. Mac and cheese, plus meat is a winner every time, especially with kids.

I just made up a Tex-Mex recipe that I thought would be good and it was! So, of course I had to share the recipe with you. I make large portions, so you could always cut this in half and still feed a family of four.
