    I had to change a lot of things with this recipe, but it was worth it! All of the revisions came from other reviewer suggestions I made taco seasoned ground beef, then added the tomatoes and since the meat was seasoned I added no salt and just a pinch of sugar. I changed the layers, as suggested, and put the noodles on the bottom,hamburger next, cream mixture next (an ounce more cream cheese, 1/2 c more sour cream), then cheddar cheese. I covered with foil for first half the cooking time and removed it for the second half. It was truly DELICIOUS once it was made with the CHANGES. I have a picky husband & 4 year old and they both gobbled it up and had seconds! It was just as good rewarmed the next day!  -  03 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have been cooking this recipe for years. I remember it being one of the first things I ever made that didn't come out of a box and it's been a family favorite ever since. I will say that my recipe varies slightly. I use 3 green onions instead of regular and mix it with 2 cups sour cream and 8 oz cream cheese in a separate bowl. I also use 16 oz of tomato sauce instead of the diced tomatoes and mix with ground beef, a can of corn, 1 tsp sugar and salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper and Worcestershire sauce. I then layer (repeatedly and in this order) the cooked noodles, beef mixture, and the cream cheese mixture. I then top with a lot of cheddar cheese and bake until it bubbles (about 30 minutes).  -  13 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    After reading the reviews, the best things are to; 1) Add 1oz more cream cheese& 1/2 cup more sour cream 2) Add 1/2 of the onions to beef while frying 3) Season beef well 4) Cover with foil Layer like recipe calls for and it is a excellent dish. My family (who are picky eaters) wanted me to make it again the next week! It is also very easy to make. Send us more recipes like it!!!  -  11 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
