    I have been making this for 40 years. I substitute beef broth for the water.

    I am making this right now. I added onion soup mix and chicken broth instead of water. Very easy to make.

    I followed the recipe exactly. I was very disappointed and would not make again. I don't know if there wasn't enough liquid to properly cook the noodles, but the noodles turned out gummy. Also the overall flavor was too sweet.

    I dont like the tomato soup in it so i exchanged a 2 cans tomato sauce and and can of diced tomatoes drained ( i usually use a can of ROTEL diced tomatoes and Green chiles but didnt have any) I added fresh Hatch NM Green Chiles....delicious!

    I tweeked this recipe a little bit I added half a jar of sauce and water, i think that an extra can of tomatoe soup and can of diced tomatoes would have worked well but i only had 2 cans of the soup. I also added a few pinches of chili powder. No leftovers so it must have been good. thanks!
