It's What's For Dinner

How to make a normal meal from Hamburger Helper:  Cheesy Enchilada

Some flavors of Hamburger Helper are just plain gross, so when we bought this one, we wanted to add enough to make it edible just in case, but this one wasn't too bad!

Rick prepared it according to the directions (being the only competent cook in the house), adding some minced garlic, Tastefully Simple's Onion Onion and Garlic Garlic* to the ground beef while it browned.  Once all of the ingredients were combined, he added chopped onion to the mix.  We ate ours a little differently, I had shredded cheddar cheese and chopped tomato mixed in mine.  Rick made his into a taco, with cheese, sour cream, chopped onion, lettuce and hot sauce on a flour tortilla.  I will admit, we eat too much, and usually a box of Hamburger Helper is just a little bit too small for three adults, but this could easily have fed four (I stuffed myself a little for fear of hunger later, but I didn't finish my plate).  

It was a nice change, although a little bland.  Rick said next time he would brown the ground beef with chopped onion, chili powder, and minced garlic.  After browning and adding the seasoning packets with rice, he would add a can of garlic and herb diced tomatoes, paprika, more chili powder, more Garlic Garlic, onion powder and minced garlic, and some salt and pepper (and probably add another adult to help us finish it off).

That's my review for tonight!  What did you have for dinner?

  1. That is the only version of hamburger helper I can stand. All the rest are just horrible. I love the way your husband spiced it up, I may have to try that.


Love it and leave it!
