Velveeta Cheeseburger Mac

I don’t even know what possessed me. I’m not a processed/American cheese fan… really at all. (Well I do love that melty cheese dip in the crockpot…)  But when I got my Food & Family magazine (which used to be free… apparently they charge for it now?) this recipe looked really good (hormones?). So I tried it…

AND… it was good.  Not sure I’d make it on a regular basis, because I honestly have a hard time buying Velveeta!    The only thing I did differently was also add some mustard..  (I figured it already had cheese, hamburger and ketchup!)  And it was easy, and was a one-pot meal! LOVE that!

Velveeta Cheeseburger Mac

1 lb. ground beef
2-3/4 cups  water
1/3 cup ketchup
1 tsp.  onion powder
2 cups elbow macaroni, uncooked
1/2 lb.  (8 oz.) VELVEETA Pasteurized* Prepared Cheese Product, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

BROWN meat in large skillet; drain.
ADD water, ketchup and onion powder; mix well. Bring to boil. Stir in macaroni; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 8 to 10 min. or until macaroni is tender.
STIR in VELVEETA; cook until melted, stirring occasionally.

*Maybe it’s the word pasteurized that really turns me off???
