Top Review by Ilysse

I wanted to change my review and up my rating to 5 stars. This is a great go-to recipe. I make it often and everyone loves it. Its easy to streach too. I use about 1 lb ground beef (usually a little more, anywhere from 1 to 1-1/4) and anywhere from 2 to 4 cans each (depending on hunger and number of people) of the tomato soup, veg soup, and my own addition of mixed vegetables. I only use about 1 can of water, more if it seems to need. I also sometimes add more water and some quick cooking brown rice which also helps to stretch it when needed. I keep all the ingredients on had so its a great meal to make in a pinch and perfect for thoes nights when you just don't feel like cooking but still want to make sure your feeding your family well. Its the perfect meal, low in fat and calories and all food groups are represented when you add some fruit for dessert.
