One Pot Taco Mac & Cheese Recipe

Date:

Share:

My husband was working from home as I made this. He kept wandering into the kitchen to figure out what smelled so good, and to see if he could have a bowl. After I was done, I brought him a big serving topped with all the garnishes, and it took him a little more than a minute to clean the bowl. His assessment is that this is the bowl of warm comfort food that we all need right now, and I certainly agree!
