"My mother has a recipe like this one that she got out of a cookbook that came with her microwave oven over 30 years ago. It is my families favorite. Our recipe calls for Hamburger, both soups, onions, noodles, cheese and chili powder. We always make a big batch so we have lots of leftovers."

"GOSH, I'd forgotten about this. Made it often when kids were young - it was a mainstay at our house. Thak you for trip down memory lane!! Now that we're empty nesters, it'd be very easy to "halve" this dish."
