In a Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the diced onion and cook until it is soft and translucent. Add the ground beef, salt, and pepper, and use a wooden spoon to break up the meat as it browns.

Remove from heat and add the cream cheese and 2 cups of shredded cheese (reserve the other cup of cheese to use as a topping). Stir until the cheese is completely melted.

Transfer any leftover Stovetop Taco Mac and Cheese into an airtight container and store it in the fridge. Leftovers can then be enjoyed for up to 5 days.
