I cooked the onions and peppers with the hamburger so I didn't need the olive oil. Also after reading the previous review, I added garlic salt and onion powder to the hamburger too. I didn't have jalepenos, so I sprinkled in some cayenne pepper. My husband ate enough to feed 3 people. We also sprinkled the cheese on our own servings instead of mixing it in. We enjoyed. Thanks Moose!

While the recipe itself may be good (have not made it) I find the name very misleading. I thought it would be a recipe for a dry mix you can make yourself to replicate the over-priced store bought mixes.

I seasoned the ground beef with Worcestershire sauce and grill seasoning to add some additional flavor. Then I removed the browned ground beef from the pan and cooked the potatoes, peppers and onion in the drippings until the potatoes were tender (adding a couple cloves of minced garlic to the mix). I used mozarella instead of cheddar (only a half cup or so) and the kids couldn't get enough!
