Creamy Taco Mac

After seeing this recipe in several blogs lately, I put it on my to do list. It looked easy, not terribly bad for you, and really delicious. I was definitely wondering if it would live up to all the hype. After seeing rave reviews on one of my favorite blogs, I finally picked up all the ingredients.

It was definitely a good meal. And I can tell its one of those "even better when reheated" dishes!

Creamy Taco Mac
Adapted from
Delish by way of Lauren's Kitchen


1 lbs ground turkey breast
1/2 onion, chopped
8 oz dry pasta + 1 cup reserved pasta water (I used medium shells)
1 can (14.5 oz) petite diced tomatoes
4 Tbsp mild taco seasoning
4 oz reduced fat cream cheese
1/2 cup lite sour cream
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup reduced fat Mexican blend cheese
salt & pepper


Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook pasta per directions. Reserve one cup of pasta water.

Over medium heat, brown ground turkey until no longer pink. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes. Add taco seasoning and diced tomatoes. Allow to simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Add cooked pasta, reserved water, cream cheese, sour cream and corn. Give it a good stir until cheeses are melty and incorporated. Simmer over low heat for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt & pepper, as desired. Top off with mexican cheese for extra cheesy goodness.

ZACH'S RATING - **** 1/2
