My kids LOVE hamburger helpers, but being that they are often FULL of sodium etc. I went to work in the kitchen. This recipe is easily adapted by changing a few ingredients. Ground beef -chicken or turkey Cream of mushroom soup to cream of chicken or nacho cheese soup and different pasta change this dish into many alternatives. ex: I replace the ground beef, noodles and cream of mushroom for chicken breast cubed, nacho cheese soup and use cut up tortillas for a Mexican version.
