    Doesn't get much better!

    Pasta, meat, cheese, a little spice, and super easy to make! It doesn't get much better than that! I also added shredded cheddar cheese, because you can never have too much cheese!

    Good- made a ton!!

    This was very good! Similar to Hamburger Helper but I like that it isn't so processed. I don't like chunky things so I used picante sauce instead of the salsa. I think I would agree with the reviewers that said to add taco seasoning to the beef first for a little more flavor. This made a TON and I am only one person so I think I might half it next time. The good news is that it froze well and I had a couple more meals out of it.

    Great, easy recipe!

    I loved this recipe. It was easy to make. I did make a few improvisions such as using cream of chicken soup since I did not have cream of cheddar. I also added shredded cheddar cheese stirred it in and tossed the entire mixture in a lasagne pan, put bread crumbs in melted butter and put that on top of the mixture and baked it for about 15min. It added some crunchiness to it and it was great!!!

    Cheesy Picante Mac & Beef

    I sprinkled cheddar on the finished product. Pretty tasty for a little amount of effort.
