My family did not like this recipe because it is too bland, and mine ended up more like a goulash than a soup. The cheese from the package did not mix well either. I should have listened to the other reviewer and added more spices and used beef broth. I might try this again because it's quick and easy.

Very good, but a little bland for my taste. The recipe calls for 6 cups of water; I used 3 cups water and 3 cups beef broth, instead. I upped the dried spices from 1/4 tsp. to 1/2 tsp., I also added 1/2 tsp. cumin. That addition perfected it, in my opinion. Happy cooking!!
