"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."

"While the recipe was very inexpensive and easy to make, I thought that it lacked a lot of flavor. I would recommend adding more chili powder even if you don't like spice. It was lacking something."
