"My 4 boys and husband all love this even though some are picky. I usually double it keeping with one can of soup and using only one large onion."

"I doubled the recipe, but purposely did not double the water, I only used 2 cups rather than 2-2/3 cups. However, 2 cups was still far too much water, and made a big difference in the end as far as it being too watery and lacking in flavor. -Lori in WI."
