Taco Night Casserole

I saw this orginally on my pal Valerie's blog. I couldn't resist making one too. Thanks for the idea!!!
I tweaked it a bit but the basic idea is there. We had this for dinner last night.

Taco Night Casserole
16 oz elbow macaroni
1 pound hamburger (or you could use soyburger if you want to go veggie with it)
2 tomatoes, diced
6 oz cheddar cheese (or Monterey jack-whatever you like)
1 can black beans, drained
1 medium onion, diced
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 can tomato soup

Cook beef and onion, and drain. Add the taco seasoing to ground beef mixture, mix well.
Meanwhile cook the macaroni for about 7 minutes, until almost done. It will continue to cook in the oven. Drain well.
Add, tomatoes, beans, soup and hamburger to the macaroni. Mix to combine. Put in a 9X13 pan and top with the cheese. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.
Additional toppings could be:
more cheese
green onions
sour cream

We served ours with chips on the side. It was really yummy and this recipe makes ALOT! Be prepared for tons of leftovers!!
