    It was really good. We used a half of red onion instead. My husband doesn’t want me to cook packaged hamburger helper ever again. We also used almond milk and chicken stock.

    Great recipe, used some leftover ground beef and it came out fantastic. Next time I’ll add a little more spice, but this dish was delicious

    We love this recipe, its so yummy and quicky/easy to make! I usually add a bit more garlic powder and onion. I also add more tomato sauce because I like mine with a bit more of a tomato flavor. This is regular in our house now.
