potatoes, peeled and sliced
red bell pepper, seeded and diced
red onion, chopped
shredded Cheddar cheese
fresh jalapeno pepper, chopped
I cooked the onions and peppers with the hamburger so I didn't need the olive oil. Also after reading the previous review, I added garlic salt and onion powder to the hamburger too. I didn't have jalepenos, so I sprinkled in some cayenne pepper. My husband ate enough to feed 3 people. We also sprinkled the cheese on our own servings instead of mixing it in. We enjoyed. Thanks Moose!
While the recipe itself may be good (have not made it) I find the name very misleading. I thought it would be a recipe for a dry mix you can make yourself to replicate the over-priced store bought mixes.
I seasoned the ground beef with Worcestershire sauce and grill seasoning to add some additional flavor. Then I removed the browned ground beef from the pan and cooked the potatoes, peppers and onion in the drippings until the potatoes were tender (adding a couple cloves of minced garlic to the mix). I used mozarella instead of cheddar (only a half cup or so) and the kids couldn't get enough!
If you try this you have to really think about how you want to spice it up. I added many seasonings to this and also ended up adding a little Velveeta for creaminess.
Not bad, a good recipe to use as a base and customize for your own tastes or to use whatever is on hand. I added some taco seasoning and some corn.
This recipe was good, however I made the following changes:
I added 3 potatoes (6 total). I used sweet white onions instead of red. I replaced milk and jalepeno with 1/2 can tomato soup. I cooked the potatoes first, then browned the ground beef.
It was very good! It's great to have an alternative to all of the preservatives and additives in the boxed version. Now to find a homemade recipe for HB Helper using noodles!
I cooked the onion and pepper with the ground beef and added taco seasoning. Family loved it.
This was awful, nobody ate it. It was bland and needed some spice.
