I made a few changes to this recipe and it turned out amazing! First I browned the ground beef with half an onion (large). I also used 2 cloves of garlic and 1 tsp cajun spice and salt and pepper to taste. I also added about 3/4 cup grated sharpe Cheddar cheese and sour cream as topping and 2 diced green onions. Amazing!

This was plain plain plain. Followed the recipe to a "t" except that I added both onion and garlic per other reviewer's advice. This was so plain my husband and I could barely choke it down. It needs flavor and A LOT of it. Some people added taco seasoning maybe that would work. I used mild Pace chunky salsa and maybe if I had used hot salsa it would have been better. As is this recipe is not good at all. Read More

I used whole grain shells so I needed to add extra broth & cook longer. Other than that tasty & easy. Just wished they made a reduced fat cheddar cheese soup! Read More

I should have used the whole 32 oz of broth because the liquid boiled off before the shells were cooked. Read More

i subbed ground turkey for the beef but otherwise followed this recipe as written. i thought it was ok pretty average for a campbells soup recipe. the kids threw a fit because there were chunks. if there's a next time i will sub taco sauce for the salsa to eliminate the chunk issue:) Read More

My family and I really enjoyed this meal it was quick and easy. I did sautee the onions as well and added some chili powder and garlic powder. My daughter is very sensitive to spicy food so I also mixed some sour cream after it was cooked and she loved it. Read More
