As a kid there was a hamburger helper type box dinner that I loved. They quit making it so this is my version of that recipe. Enjoy it!

VARIATIONS I have tried and love. If you are stretching a budget or feeding a crowd you can add a can of corn or a can of black beans or both to the mixture. If it seems too dry add some salsa or a can of rotel tomatoes. This reheats nicely in the microwave the next day.
