Taco Mac and Cheese for the After School kids

I made this earlier today for the kids afternoon meal.                                                                                                                   
 I browned 5 pounds of ground beef and added taco seasonings, black beans and a can of rotel.  This is spread in the base of the slow cooker.

 Then I boiled 5 pounds of pasta.

 This is a good way to use up excess cheese.  I combined some Velveeta, Swiss, mozzarella and cheddar with milk and seasonings.

 When the pasta was al dente, I drained it and tossed it with some diced peppers.

 The melted cheese is combined with the pasta.

 Doesn't this look like something that a bunch of really hungry kids will dig into?  The pasta is spread over the ground meat.

 I topped it with mild jalapenos.  I just know the kids will enjoy this.
