Hamburger Helper/Chicken Helper - is it really considered cooking?

I give the Chicken Helper and Hamburger helpers a try once in awhile.  Sometimes I feel like a low budget cook when I use these box meals; but I have to tell you, it's how you prepare them.  This Mexican Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Chicken Helper was so good.  Add sour cream and olives and it's wonderful.  Another great thing do so is wrap it up in a tortilla with lettuce, sour cream olives, etc.  Serve with a side salad and tortilla chips. I would like to try it as the filling for enchiladas. Make it a "semi-homemade" meal. It will cost about $3 - $4 depending on what you add as your side favorites.

Get creative with those boxed meals.
