      As some other reviewers mentioned, I made a couple adjustments: used one yellow and half a red pepper, used different pasta (oops, ran out of rotini), added half a chopped medium onion, added 1 tsp. minced garlic, 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper. My DH and guest loved it!! Plus, it's super easy - like home-made Hamburger Helper with no weird additives! Thanks, loof!!

      5 Stars for quick and very satisfying weeknight dinner for us, who like a little spice to our food. I used Rotel "Mexican" style (with lime and cilantro) because we love that little extra zing. I didn't have a green bell pepper when I made this, so I substituted a yellow bell pepper; DH thought green bell pepper would be better in this dish. My only complaint was my ground beef from Costco, making me swear to grind my own meat without the sinew and gristle... grr. Because I have a heavy tri-ply stainless steel chef's pot, I used 2 Tablespoons of olive to brown the ground meat so it would not stick too much to the pan. I drained the browned ground beef in a fine-mesh colander before returning to the pan with the tomatoes and water. DH said the heat from the Rotel grew with each bite, but it was never very spicy. This will be in our regular rotation. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.

      I'm trying to teach my son to cook, and I thought this would be a good recipe for him to try. It turned out great! I did add some minced onion and used 1/2 beef broth and 1/2 water. The Velveeta melted beautifully and gave a wonderful cheesy taste to every bite. It's something we'll be having again -- so easy and so delicious!!!
