This was a good, comforting dish for a cold winter day. I was a bit skeptical about using cream of chicken soup with ground beef but it added a bit of sweetness that I wasn't expecting.
This type of recipe is great for slipping veggies onto your kids' plates while masking it with the gooeyness of cheese and potatoes.
Hope you enjoy!
