How to Make One-Pot Taco Spaghetti

This pasta is super easy to make. Start with browning some ground beef. Drain the fat and dump in the remaining ingredients – taco seasoning, cumin, chili powder, diced tomatoes and green chiles, garlic salt, onion, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, beef broth, heavy cream, and spaghetti. Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the noodles are soft and the sauce has thickened. Top the spaghetti with some dried parsley or cilantro and cheese.

Feel free to add some bell peppers, fresh onions, or mushrooms to the pasta. I would toss them in when browning the ground beef. If you want a spicy spaghetti, use hot Rotel tomatoes.

  1. This was easy and flavorful. I knew it would be loaded with sodium, so I used low sodium beef broth, no added salt tomatoes and used garlic powder instead of the garlic salt. It was still plenty salty. I also used whole grain pasta to make it a bit healthier.
