I got on here one day and just wanted a different recipe to use up some noodles and hamburger. What I ended up was a family favorite. I changed the recipe just a little to fit my ingredients I had by using a quart jar of tomato juice (I can my own), 12 ounce bag of noodles instead of 16 oz., and home frozen corn (2c) instead of a can of corn. And so far we've made this three times in a month and everyone loves it. thanks again!

This was just okay for me. I kept referring back to the recipe to see if I had left something out - it was a bit too dry for our tastes. I'm really a fan of 1-pot meals so I *wanted* to love it, but it was missing something. Not sure what. Maybe next time more spices and a can of tomato sauce. Sorry. :-(

My husband and I loved this recipe! It was filling, but not too heavy. Since there are just 2 of us we had leftovers that were just as tasty as the night that it was prepared. Very easy to prepare just make sure you have a large pan to fit all the ingredients. I will definetly be fixing this again.

absolutely delecious !! happy to find mexican dish without cheese , scaled it to 4 servings and made some changes , added 4 cloves of garlic instead, 1 fresh tomato large, added 1/4 cup of frozen corn+1/4 cup of frozen peas instaed of canned ones , and 1 tbs of hot and spicy taco seasoning, 1 jalapeno for spice, but didnot add beef , so it was a vegetarians delight. made the egg noodles first and then added the prepared mixture gravy to the cooked noodles .lastly didnot had sour cream so thought of plain yogurt as a substitute. thanks for avery tasty recipe.

Hello! I am the submitter of this recipe. Make sure if you brown your hamburger in a skillet that you use a larger stock-pot type of pan to do the rest. If you try and do all of this in a skillet you will run out of room. It makes a lot!

My dinner guests loved this recipe! Filling but not heavy. We put sour cream and Tostitos on the side. I cut back the noodles to 2/3 of a pkg. and added a little extra water and chili powder. I plan on making this again! Thanks!

I too felt like there was something missing in this recipe. It was good, but not great. I wondered if using chorizo sausage might spice it up a bit.

This was really delicious!! I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and it was still great! It sure makes a lot!! I'll continue to make this over and over again.
