This is a great recipe if you are looking for something quick cheap and kid friendly. It costs approximately 4.00 to make( including macaroni or rice to serve it on) makes a ton and tastes wonderful. My 3 year old gobbles this up each time I make it. You can add vegetables sour cream or different spices to add more kick if desired. This is a weekly staple at my house. Gourmet food this is not but just simple great everyday fare. Definitely worth trying. Read More

This was pretty good and very easy/fast. Kind of bland. I guess what soup you use could change that. Also for the soups I used this was a high salt/ high fat (lots of meat) meal. Not so sure about the "good for you claim". Very hearty Read More

I used some leftover homemade chicken veggie soup & it was great. My two year old had seconds (we were about to call Guiness World book on that one). It was surprisingly good for how easy it was! Read More

I basically added the ground beef to my leftover chicken soup for a little variety. I added only a little bit of water to reduce thickness. It came out well. Read More

Very kid friendly recipe. I changed it up a bit to add more flavor. Used one can of alphabet veggie soup and a can of beef veggie soup. Also added a half package of frozen mixed veggies. While browning the meat I added some garlic powder and Mrs. Dash. Towards the end I thickened it with cornstarch until it reached the consistency I was looking for. Read More

This was good and so easyto make. I doubled the recipe as I wanted some for lunches for the week. I didn't double the water and I added another can of soup. We enjoyed this. My husband thought it needed more seasonings. Read More

I made this tonight with rice and really liked the smooth consistancy this dish has. Like other's suggested I only used 1/2 of the water & thickened it up at the end with corn starch. Seemed a little bland so I did add pepper & a few shakes of Emeril's essence. I would have given this 3 1/2 stars but since my picky kids cleaned their plates this one deserves at least 4. Great idea Lorieann for a quick dinner. I will use this again & try other soups. Read More

I only used 1/2 can of water which made the dish the right consistency. I added garlic and onion to the beef when I browned it. Next time I will add mixed veggies. And then maybe even experiment with different kinds of soups. An easy dinner. Read More
