wow very very good! I made just a few changes for what I had on hand. not much different from the original.<br/>No crushed red pepper: Used 1 Tbsp srircha instead, no green chilies: used 1 can mild rotel and 1 can of petite diced tomatoes instead of the 3 cans recipe called for. we topped ours with a mix of cheddar and Monterey jack cheese. OH and I didn't have regular chili powder so I had to use HOT Mexican chili powder. we will definitely have this again. I might even tone down the heat and make for a pot luck!

Great flavor and perfect amount of heat for a side dish!!! I omitted the ground beef, diced green chilies and cheddar cheese because I didn't have them on hand. Also, I substituted 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes for the ground red pepper and changed the pasta measurements to 4 oz. orzo and 8 oz. fideos. This was a side dish to our dinner and I will definitely be making this again!

I made this for dinner for my family and we all loved it. I used garlic powder because I didnt have any garlic salt and just added a tsp. of kosher salt too. Also I didnt have beef bouillion so I used 2 cups hot beef broth instead of the bouillion and the water. It was a bit spicy but we all like it hot. Will be making again for sure. My boys were scooping up leftovers with nacho doritos!! Thanks for a great recipe.

I made this last night for dinner and we all liked it a lot. I have to admit I cut back the heat drastically, because we're all wimps here. I also used ground chicken so I switched the boullion to chicken.But it was very tasty and very easy to throw together. Thanks!
