Taco Mac by Jackie

*adapted from recipe from Cooking During Stolen Moments

• 1 lb. ground beef (= 2 c. cooked meat, if cooking meat in bulk)
• 1/2 onion, diced
• 1 T. chili powder
• 1 T. cumin
• 2 t. garlic powder
• 1 t. salt
• 2 c. elbow macaroni
• 1 1/2 c. beef stock or broth
• 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
• 1 14.5 oz. can crushed tomatoes (= 2 c. if using Sam's size can)
• 2 c. frozen corn
• 1 c. shredded cheese

1. Brown ground beef and onion. Drain. Stir in seasonings.
2. Place in gallon Ziploc freezer bag.
3. Place broth, tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes in bag with meat mixture.
4. Place corn in Ziploc sandwich bag.
5. Place uncooked noodles in Ziploc sandwich bag.
6. Place cheese in Ziploc sandwich bag.
7. Place corn, noodle and cheese bags into a 2nd gallon Ziploc freezer bag.
8. Lay both gallon bags flat in freezer.

Serving Day:
1. Thaw all bags, except corn completely.
2. Bring noodle and meat mixture bag contents to a boil in a skillet. Reduce heat to low. Cover skillet and simmer, stirring occasionally, until noodles are cooked, about 15 – 20 minutes.
3. Stir in corn until heated through.
4. Top with cheese and serve.


  1. We liked this meal, but we did not cook the noodles all the way, so they were a bit chewy. I should have waited until they were all the way cooked through before adding the corn.

  2. Not a fan of this one.

  3. Our family and whole freezer group love this recipe!
