Tasty. Not as soupy as Hamburger Helper can get! My grocery was out of Cheddar Cheese Soup so used about 1/2 canful of nacho cheese dip and a little cream. Had a nice kick of flavor! Made it "full fat" but might try lighter version next time. Think it would be about the same! Thanks.

My family loved it. Did add more spices than what the original recipe called for, but just eyeballed the amount. My husband said I needed to put this on the "to make list" so I'm cooking it again tonight!

Neither The Boyfriend nor I were blown away by this recipe, but it was still pretty good. It lacked something, but I'm not quite sure what. I think it may be too creamy/soupy. At the suggestion of the other reviewers, I added more spices than what's listed in the recipe. Here's what I added: paprika (1/4 tsp), garlic salt (1/4 tsp), onion powder (1/4 tsp), nutmeg (~1/8 tsp), ground mustard (~1/8 tsp), kosher salt (1/2 tsp) and chili powder (1/4 tsp). I can't say exactly how each of those affected the taste, but they seemed to have helped. Used cheddar cheese instead of American and added more as a topping 10 minutes before it finished cooking. Will probably be making this again with more modifications. Served with French cut green beans.

This was Ok but it seemed to need some spice. I think next time I will add some sort of spices besides the basil. One thing I did differently was use chedder instead of american cheese & that is only because I can NEVER find shredded american. I'll probably try it again with some changes

This was surprisingly good! I didn't have any cheddar cheese soup so I substituted with some processed cheese slices and 1/2 cup extra milk. I also used onion powder instead of chopped onion so that my son would eat it. Everyone loved it! Thank you.

This is pretty darn good! I used cheddar cheese and added some cooked/crumbled bacon just because we like it. ;) Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks!
