my husband loves this recipe. i made a few changes when cooking: i added 1/4 tsp garlic powder and browned the ground beef with the garlic and chili powder together. after draining and adding the water/noodles, i sprinkled a bit more chili powder on top, along with some pepper. we left out the broccoli after reading some of the comments. i also added a touch of milk at the end to make it more creamy. last night, we thought it was great. at first bite, i was thinking it might need some corn, but my husband likes it as is. i'm eating the leftovers for lunch right now and it tastes even better the 2nd day. we will definitely be making this again!
