I added to the sauce McCormick Speghetti Sauce mix to the tomato sauce mix, it makes it a little thicker, and a LOT more tastier, and I also addded on top a mixture of colby, Jack cheese, and the mexican mix cheese, (both in a bag). It turned out AWESOME!! The family loved it, and yes the kids love the beef a lot more. Who knows with kids. Thanks!!
