2 cups water
1/3 cup taco seasoning spice(make up a bunch and put it in a jar)
3 cups of any small short noodle(such as egg or macaroni or mini lasagna if you can find them)
1/2 cup cheese whiz or 1/2 cup cubed velveeta cheese
1/2 cup salsa
1lb hamburger or turkey(if you are really feeling your frugal oats!)

Brown your meat and drain as needed in a large skillet. Add water noodles and taco season and bring it to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 9-12 minutes until noodles are cooked. Remove from heat. Add the cheese and salsa until cheese is melted and both are well blended.

Should make 4 hearty servings. Not a good choice for leftovers if you have a family but a nice cheap meal idea.
