I found this receipe a couple of years ago. As a foster parent of 2 teenagers I never knew how many mouths I was going to feed. This is quick and filling and everybody loves it. I do often buy a large quanity of ground beef and before I freeze it I will chop 1 onion and cook the ground beef and onion. This cuts down a step in the process. This can also be frozen. To freeze leave off the shredded cheese.
