I liked it..I also did something different, I browned the onion/celery first in Olive oil and added meat later. I also drained the excess grease. I added some kick with cut up jalapenos..just a few. good recipee and easy to make thanks

Good base recipe but I made some modifications. First, I omitted the oil. I also drained the grease which isn't mentioned. I used meunster cheese instead of American and I also added a little water and a package of taco seasoning mix. Turned out like enchilada Hamburger Helper, yum! My kids loved it! Thanks!
