I've been making this for years and never knew it was a Campbell's recipe. Just found it! I always use elbows instead of shells. It's quck, easy and we think, delicious! This can easily be doubled! We also serve it with sour cream and grated cheddar. A great weeknight meal!
Im normally a salsa and mac n cheese lover. But my husband and i did not care for this recipe. I will not be recommending this to anyone
Good, easy recipe. I boiled the noodles in a separate pot in water instead of the broth. As suggested I browned the beef with some onion, garlic and taco seasoning. I used 2 lbs of ground beef and more pasta. After draining the grease I added 2 cans of diced tomatoes with chilies, 2 cans of the cheese soup and the cooked pasta. The chilies gave it a bit of a kick, I made add one more can next time.
alot of flavor. used velveta instead of the campbell's cheese, also added a can of diced tomatoes with chilies. the leftovers were great, almost better after sitting.
Really good & quick. The only change I made was to season the beef with an envelope of taco seasoning while browning. Also, I use spicier salsa than I normally eat for more flavor.
My friend made this one day during our girls weekend and it was great comfort food! The trick is to use HOT salsa. Great served with applesauce! We ate it up!
Pretty bland as written. I added a couple of cloves of garlic, a small onion, and some cumin while the beef was cooking (taco seasoning would probably go well). I also threw in some frozen corn at the end (heating the cheese soup). It could have used another can of cheese soup, but I didn't have any on hand. I topped it with sour cream and cheese.
Love this recipe and have been making it for years. However I have made a few changes to the recipe. I use ground turkey instead of beef, 2 cans of chicken broth instead of the broth / water, elbow macaroni works best and 1 jar of mild salsa instead of 1 cup. The salsa really gives it the flavor.
It's an awesome quick meal that the whole family loves.
