    Great. This is an easy go to that’s in the rotation for last minute dinners love it and love how we just use whatever is on hand to make it pizza style or taco style - thanks for sharing!

    This recipe was yummy! I ended up using just broth then added in a little sour cream in the end (don’t tell me husband!) Even though I put in a bit too much cayenne powder it came out tasty! Would recommend.

    Delicious! To cut back on the amount of cheese, I added a slurry of flour and broth (about 1/2 cup broth and 1/4 cup of flour) about 4 minutes before it finished cooking.

    It was really good. We used a half of red onion instead. My husband doesn’t want me to cook packaged hamburger helper ever again. We also used almond milk and chicken stock.
