    I didn’t make any modifications. It was ok, but very bland. Probably need to double spices as the other reviews suggest

    Turn out good added more garlic powder & paparika also used minced onion instead of onion powder.

    I doubled the spices, added a touch of red pepper flakes and added a little more milk. The only cheese we had was a Mexican Four Cheese blend that turned out to match the rest of the recipe nicely. It really hit the spot and we will definitely make this again.

    This is amazing. I used 1 and a half teaspoons of salt, 1/4 pepper, and a cup and a half of cheese and it tastes and smells just like hamburger helper, but better and cheesier. Mmmm

    It was perfect, even though I didn’t use the exact amount of everything it still worked out pretty great. Also I had no onions at the time, but it is totally fine.

    Great! Just added a little more seasoning and cheese for extra flavor. Simple and flavorful meal my family will eat!

    My 12 year old son helped make this and it turned out well. I was out of several spices I used a chill powder and it turned out fine
