"My husband and I thought this was just ok, very mediocre. We put shredded cheddar cheese on top and that helped. I think part of the problem may have been that I had to use condensed cheddar cheese soup since my grocery store didn't have any nacho cheese soup. For now I'm rating it 3 stars, but I will try it again when I find the nacho cheese soup and update the rating."

"This recipe is amazing! It made my apartment smell heavenly while it was cooking and tasted just as great. Only suggestion would be to add a little bit of salt. Otherwise great recipe! I added some onions too."
