Chili Mac & Cheese

I made this two weeks ago and then again tonight. My kids and husband requested it! It is super tasty! I found the recipe here and made my own alterations below.

Chili Mac & Cheese
2 packages (7-1/4 ounces each) macaroni and cheese dinner mix
2 pounds ground beef
2 tbsp dehydrated onions (can use diced onion instead)
2 can (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups (16 ounces) Sour Cream
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
1 cup frozen corn

Set aside cheese packets from dinner mixes. In a large saucepan, bring 2 quarts water to a boil. Add macaroni; cook for 8-10 minutes or until tender.
Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, cook and stir beef and onion over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce and seasonings. Drain macaroni; add to beef mixture. Stir in contents of cheese packets, sour cream and 1 cup cheese, and 1 cup corn.
Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; top with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly. Yield: 8 servings.
