    Dee_73's Note:

    I just made this on a whim...why I have no idea but it was awesome and you can't tell a difference from the boxed stuff *yuck* It's soooo much cheaper to make it from scratch! I use Penzey's Taco seasoning but they advertise Old El Paso on the box so I assume that's what they use (could also use your own!). Also the noodles are an approximation since I kinda didn't pre-measure them I grabbed a couple of handfuls to fill up my skillet lol...same with the cheese, I had a half bag of "taco seasoned" shredded cheese left over and just threw it in there too. My husband didn't believe I made it from scratch! He was looking all over for the box haha

      With my additions I give it 5 stars. I added a can of Rotel, decreased the water by 1/4 cup, and added a chopped red pepper with the onion. I doubled the cheese. I served it topped with sour cream and sliced avocado. I don't buy Hamburger Helper because of all the crap in it (MSG, HFCS, dyes, etc) so this recipe was very helpful.

      I loved Hamburger Helper as a kid but just can't stand boxed mixes these days. So it was really fun to try this recipe and we all loved it! I didn't have and groundbeef, so we used hot sausage. I also used my own homemade taco seasoning. It took a little more water than the recipe called for. Terrific and fun recipe!
