Add in two pounds of ground beef and one pound of ground sausage. We love to use mild sausage around here, but feel free to kick it up a notch with some spicy sausage if that’s your preferred kind!

Season the meat and onions with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Cook and drain the meat, then return it to the stovetop and turn the heat down to low. Add in your favorite processed cheese of choice, and stir until the cheese has melted and coats the meat mixture.
