Awesome! I used a 1/2 lb of meat and mixed in a can of black beans to add fiber and reduce calories. Also, I replaced the fried onions with raw onion because it's what I had on hand. I'm looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
Great recipe,one of my grandkids loved it, the other ask if I could make her some noodles. I added a can of diced tomatoes with chiles. My husband thought it was great minus the chesse, I have picky eaters.
