pound lean ground beef
cup water
cups milk
package Hamburger Helper® cheeseburger macaroni
cups slightly crushed tortilla chips
1 1/4
cups Old El Paso® salsa (any variety)
cup sour cream
Sliced ripe olives, if desired
Green onion, sliced, if desired
  1. Cook beef in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain.
  2. Stir in hot water, milk, uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from Hambuger Helper box). Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
  3. Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat and uncover (sauce will thicken as it stands).
