This was just ok. I did not use the microwave. I made this on the stovetop and just threw it in the oven after putting on the cheese and chips for 15 minutes. Good with a dollop of sour cream on top.

I have made this dish twice. Very tasty! However, I didn't make it in the microwave. I browned the onion and hamburger on the stove, then put it in a baking dish and baked it for 15 min in the oven. I also put some corn chips on the bottom and in the middle layer. Great leftovers for me to take to work.

This dish did not have a bad taste, however I thought it was more like home made hamburger helper.

I made this and wasn't sure if my family would like it. They scarfed it down immediately. Big hit.
