How can something that is so simple be so deliciously good!? Well, I am just happy for quick and easy recipes like this one especially when I have a really busy schedule and with so less time to prepare dinner. It is really a lifesaver! Of course, I used a frozen pack of fries or in this case, potato wedges, but if you are not in so much of a hurry you can also make it from scratch. Same goes for the cheese sauce, it is actually easy to make just like the recipe I used for making mac and cheese.

I do have a tip for you when cooking ground beef. I usually use soy sauce to season ground beef instead of just using salt. Believe me, it tastes a lot better, I guess because soy sauce is easier to absorb and somehow it also enhances the taste of the beef.

This recipe is good enough for 2 but can just be double without a problem. You can also add as much cheese as you want, I know I do! 

If you are a fan of Chili, then you should also check out my Super Cheesy Chili Mac and Cheese recipe. A  sumptuous all-in-one meal combining Chili and Mac and Cheese! Yum!
