I made this for dinner last night and this recipe is a "keeper" . I made a few changes: I used all ground turkey instead of the ground beef and ground turkey combination and I used the regular condensed soups (not the reduced fat/sodium soups) and I used condensed cream of mushroom instead of the cream of celery (because that is what I had on hand). When I make this again, I want to try adding shredded cheese as well as some sauteed mushrooms. This is a delicious and easy to prepare meal ..... we have plenty of left overs as well ..... five stars for sure!

I've made this about 20 times. Leftovers are just as good.

very good. I also used reduced fat crm mushroom instead of celery; alot of flavor. Will add more onions next time.

This was a good! It lacked extra flavor. I added cheddar cheese on top of the soup and used celery instead of the mixed veggies. It was still delicious, but I would have liked a little more flavor.

Delicious! Added salt and pepper, and used cream of mushroom instead of the celery. We are in MN after all. Thanks!

Delicious! I added a tiny bit of cheddar cheese too. If you don't thaw the tots, it makes a great Freezer Recipe!

My husband loves this! Makes plenty! I don't use the reduced-fat soups but that's OK. I also like to sprinkle some shredded cheddar on the top & let it melt the last few minutes it cooks. :)
