This has been one of my TOP family meals in the rotation for 10 years. And believe me, I'm picky.
Like others, it took me 2-3 times to tweak it --
Use milk (low fat) instead of water.
1 1/2 lb ground beef
2-3 tablespoons onion FLAKES
5-6 slices of Velveeta (if you don't have the brick)
2 cans tomato soup and swish *****ans with one of the cups of milk
1 1/2 red bell pepper - chopped with chopper
Control if it it's too liquidy or too dry with/without lid during simmering.
(The 1/3 cup of ketchup is hardly noticeable - for those who complained)
Leftovers are GREAT using microwave --maybe add a little milk.
If you are a person who sees a plate of mac and cheese and immediately runs for the ketchup bottle, this recipe is for you. All I could taste was the ketchup. The flavor of the cheese was nearly completely obliterated. My husband liked it, but I didn't. To the leftovers I added a bunch more of Velveeta and that made it tolerable to me.
I have a recipe that's similar that I think came from Kraft as well. You just use the boxed Kraft mac and cheese. You brown the meat, add the boxed mac and cheese, 1 1/2 cups water and a 14 oz can of tomatoes and cook covered about 10 minutes until the water is absorbed. Top with about 1/2 cup shredded cheddar and let it melt. FAR superior to this!
With the summer months here it's always nice to have something quick and done on top of the stove. This was easy but definately not worth it. I did put the water right in with chop meat and all the water was absorbed. It was not creamy enough. Maybe putting less cheese instead of the amount they said would help. I always have enough for leftovers and I'm not looking forward to it. My hubby enjoyed it but I didn't and you know the old saying....If Momma ain't happy...nobody is. So I guess since he liked it he will have it tonite for dinnner and I will have something else. :-(
