I quadrupled this for dinner (we are a family of 6). I reduced the taco seasoning (due to children), reduced the water (to make it less soupy - only 1.5 cups of water per ramen pack) I also added 2 finely chopped carrots, 1 cup frozen corn and 1 cup frozen peas. I let it rest for about 5 mins. before serving and addedd the cheese to the pot. What a great easy meal for those nights on the run!!! Thanks for posting. To reduce more time, use boiled water and save yourself an extra 4-5 mins.
Made this for company after coming back from the beach. I needed something quick and this was just the ticket. I doubled the recipe, used less water to make it less soupy, and I added some leftover fresh corn, minced carrot and topped with recipe#302170#302170 and avocado. Yummy! Made for 2013 Zaar Cookbook tag game.
This was good and easy to make. It cooked up fast. I doubled the recipe for my family and I didn't drain the tomatoes. We all enjoyed this.
