This was really good -- After I drained the grease from beef and added the water-- Then I Added, 2 Tbs. dried onions ( or 1/2 a med. chopped onion), 1/2 teas. cumin, 1/2 teas. thyme,seasoned salt, pepper to taste. I then took 2 pkgs. Velveeta Cheese Sauce instead of reg. Velveeta and it turned out great, very tasty.
