Have you ever looked in your pantry and found it empty other than a box of mac n cheese? That doesn’t mean you have to have a boring meal and this recipe is proof of that. It may not be as “from scratch” as my other recipes but it is worth trying out, I promise. All you need is a pot, a skillet, and these ingredients.
1 box of shells and cheese, 1 red onion, 1 hatch chile, 1 lb of lamb, oil of choice, shredded cheese
Start by boiling your shells as directed on the box. Simultaneously dice half of your red onion and fry in a liberal dose of oil (I chose lard today) until soft. Dice Hatch chile and add to onion and continue to fry until barely brown. Add lamb and crumble fry with the onion and chile. Drain meat mixture and lower heat until shells are done. Drain shells and add meat mixture. Stir in cheese packet and a handful of shredded cheese. Serve and enjoy!
