  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Prepare Dinner as directed on package. While Macaroni is cooking, brown meat in skillet; drain. Stir in seasoning mix and water. Bring to boil; simmer on medium-low heat 10 min., stirring occasionally.
  • Stir sour cream into prepared Dinner. Spoon half the Dinner mixture into 8-inch square baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with layers of meat mixture, 1 cup shredded cheese and remaining Dinner mixture. Cover.
  • Bake 15 min.; top with salsa and remaining shredded cheese. Bake, uncovered, 5 min. or until cheese is melted.

Special Equipment Needed

Small Changes Add Up

Small ingredient substitutions, such as KRAFT Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Made With 2% Milk Cheese, lean ground beef, reduced amount of TACO BELL® Reduced Sodium Taco Seasoning Mix and salsa, BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream, and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese, result in a savings of 90 calories and 13g of fat, including 5g of saturated fat, per serving when compared to a traditional recipe.

Special Extra

For extra crunch and flavor, bake casserole as directed, topping with 1/2 cup coarsely crushed tortilla chips along with the salsa and cheese.
