TACO SPAGHETTI TO DIE FOR
Italian and Mexican cuisines are two of my favorite sorts of food. I swear, if I could switch between tacos, pizza, and pasta every night, I’d be perfectly satisfied. So, what could possibly be better than mixing tacos and pasta in one recipe? Nothing, to be honest.
Taco spaghetti is a wonderful Mexican casserole that combines two of our all-time favorite dishes: tacos and spaghetti with meat sauce. It is cooked in one pan and can be prepared in less than 30 minutes.
Taco spaghetti made in a single skillet is a meal that couldn’t be simpler to make. A spicy taco seasoning-seasoned ground beef, Rotel, and melted cheese are combined in this dish. As a result, we have a delicious Mexican-flavored pasta meal that even our pickiest eater enjoys!
- 1 T spoon.Of olive oil.
- Ground beef, I used one pound.
- A taco seasoning packet.
- Canned Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, I used a 10-oz can.
- 1 T spoon.Of tomato paste.
- 8-oz Pkg.Of Spaghetti.
- 1/2 Cup.Of shredded cheddar cheese.
- 1/2 Cup.Of shredded mozzarella cheese.
- A large diced tomato.
- 2 T spoons.Of chopped fresh cilantro.
- Step 1 – In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until shimmering.
- Step 2 – Cook until the ground beef is browned, approximately 3-5 minutes, stirring constantly, making careful to crumble the meat as it cooks; add taco seasoning and combine well. Excess fat should be drained.
- Step 3 – Combine the tinned tomatoes, tomato paste, spaghetti, and 3 cups of water in a large mixing bowl. Bring to a boil, then cover with a lid and decrease the heat to a low level and cook until the pasta is cooked through approximately 13-16 minutes.
- Step 4 – Remove from the heat and sprinkle with the cheeses. Cover for approximately 2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
- Step 5 – Garnish with tomato and cilantro, if preferred, and serve soon after preparing.
And that’s exactly what this meal is! Tex-Mex style spaghetti with a spicy kick that’s excellent for a weeknight meal with the family. Given the simplicity of the dish, it has become a go-to for hectic weeknights in our household.
If you are anything like me and can’t get enough Mexican and Italian cuisine in your life, you have to give this place a try!
