Cheeseburger Mac & Cheese
Author: Kelly @eclecticmommy
- 4 gloves garlic
- pinch of dried cilantro
- pinch of onion powder
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 (10 oz) can RO*TEL
- 1½ c. elbow macaroni
- 2 c. beef broth
- Cheese Sauce:
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 2 tbsp. flour
- ¾ c. milk
- 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
- pinch of salt
- pinch of pepper
- Defrost your garlic directly in the frying pan. Add your ground beef, brown and drain.
- Add ground beef, macaroni, can of RO*TEL (I used Original no salt added), and beef broth to large pot. Stir, then heat to boiling. Reduce heat, simmer covered 12-15 minutes until macaroni is tender.
- While the macaroni cooks prep the cheese sauce. Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add in flour, cooking until smooth and fragrant (~ 5 minutes). Whisk in the milk, then bring to a boil. Whisk consistently until mixture is thickened.
- Remove mixture from heat. Add shredded cheddar cheese, stirring until fully melted. Season with salt and pepper. Pour cheese sauce over cooked Mac and hamburger. Stir until fully combined.
