Emm, This Taco Spaghetti Recipe is Delicious, Let me know what you think on the facebook comments ? ?
This taco spaghetti couldn’t be any easier. Everything is prepared in one pot for very little clean-up and your meal is ready in about 30 minutes.
Growing up, I always looked forward to taco night. My mom would buy the taco seasoning packet to cook with ground beef and set up all the other ingredients so that we could make our own tacos. I always loaded mine with the seasoned ground beef.
Living in San Diego, I’ve had the pleasure of being surrounded by really great tacos, but I still can never resist the ones I ate growing up.
This dish combines seasoned ground beef with tomatoes for a delicious spaghetti dish. First you cook the ground beef by itself.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground beef
1 (1.25-ounce) package taco seasoning
1 (10-ounce can) Ro*Tel® Mild Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies
1 tablespoon tomato paste
8 ounces spaghetti
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 Roma tomato, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Heat olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add ground beef and cook until beef has browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; stir in taco seasoning. Drain excess fat.
Stir in Ro*Tel®, tomato paste, spaghetti and 3 cups water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked through, about 13-16 minutes.
Remove from heat and top with cheeses. Cover until melted, about 2 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnished with tomato and cilantro, if desired.
