  1. Bring 6 cups (1 liter) of water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the macaroni and cook for 7–8 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. While the macaroni is cooking, heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook for 5–6 minutes, until browned. Mix in 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning, then remove the pan from the heat.
  3. Drain the macaroni in a colander (do not rinse), then return to the pot over low heat. Add the butter, milk, cheese sauce mix, ¼ cup (25 G) Kraft® Shredded Cheddar Cheese, and the remaining tablespoon of taco seasoning and stir well until creamy. Remove the pot from the heat.
  4. Heat the broiler to high.
  5. Fold the ground beef into the mac and cheese, then transfer to a medium oven-safe container. Sprinkle the remaining ½ cup (100 G) Kraft® Shredded Cheddar Cheese on top.
  6. Broil the mac and cheese for 2–4 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
  7. Remove from the oven and drizzle with the Cholula® Hot Sauce, then top with the tomato and green onion. Serve warm.
  8. Enjoy!
