REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
I agree, too salty. I cut the salt down and used low sodium bouillon powder. Made the cheeseburger casserole with it.

Good but too salty. I'll cut the salt in half next time. Otherwise, very tasty. I used 1/2 low sodium chicken bullion and 1/2 regular beef bullion. To make it cheesy mac, I added about 2 oz low fat cheese and a splash of milk at the end. My son loved it, although he thought it wasn't the "right color".

The overall flavor is really good. But it's EXTREMELY salty! I wouldn't add any extra salt at all: you get saltiness from the bouillon, cheese, seasonings, and meat.

A little too much chili powder and a little salty for my taste, but that was mellowed by serving it with big crusty buns.

I've never bought Hamburger Helper because I try not to buy processed foods so I don't know if this tastes the same but it was very good. I made the cheesburger one after I mixed up the ingredients and it went over very well.
