3/4 cup water
1 cup green onions
hard taco shells
4 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni
1/8 cup butter

1. In a medium skillet over medium high heat, brown ground beef. Drain. Stir in the taco seasoning and 3/4 cup of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Heat taco shells in the oven according to package directions.

2. Meanwhile, cook elbow macaroni according to package directions. While the macaroni is cooking, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring. Slowly add the milk and cook while stirring until the mixture becomes somewhat thick. Stir in velveeta until melted. Remove from heat. Drain the macaroni and add it to the cheese sauce. Stir to coat.

3. Assemble the tacos...place a little of the taco meat into each hard shell taco and top with macaroni and cheese. Garnish with green onions.
