After a recent surgery, I wasn’t able to stock up on groceries. One night, I looked in my pantry and created this. The results were fabulous! —Michele Orthner, Lethbridge, Alberta

"I thought it was pretty good. I took another reader's advice and added a packet of taco seasoning to the meat. I think that added a nice flavor to it. I'm just not sure if I was a fan of the cream of chicken soup with the other ingredients. If I was to make it again I might try a can of cheddar cheese soup instead. It was definitely a quick and easy meal."

"A new favorite in our home! Made it exactly as written, but had to double the recipe (except the hamburger). Glad I did as there weren't any leftovers. One of my kids added peperoccinis for a little added kick. Delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!"

"This was so easy and delicious. My husband loved it! I will be making this again. I used a medium heat salsa and it was perfect."

"Quick, easy and yummy. I used more cheese and hot (not mild) salsa. Crumpled up tortilla chips made a nice topping (just before serving). My son likes to add a few dashes of hot sauce as well."
