So, you may be wondering what’s so ‘sneaky’ about this taco macaroni?
Should I tell you?
Okay…but don’t tell anyone else, m’kay?
It’s hiding a full cup of butternut squash. And it’s undetectable. Case in point: my son scarfed down two helpings and asked for more. And the ultimate critic, my husband, who won’t touch butternut squash with a ten foot pole. CLEANED. HIS. PLATE. Boo-yah.
I have been making a variation of this recipe for the last year or so, but the original recipe uses full fat milk, more butter, more cheese and ground beef. This lighter version is just as tasty, with tons less fat and calories. It is super satisfying and doesn’t taste light at all.
Serve this up with a big green salad and your family will be begging for this on a regular basis.
