Taco spaghetti is a delicious Mexican casserole that brings together two of our all-time favorite dishes, tacos and spaghetti with meat sauce all made in one pan and ready in under 30 minutes! Our one-pan taco spaghetti recipe could not be any easier to put together. It combines ground beef seasoned with zesty taco seasoning, Rotel, pasta, and melted cheese. The result is a Mexican flavored pasta dish that’s full of flavor and even our picky eater asks for it!
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound ground beef
¼ cup yellow onions
¼ cup taco seasoning or 1 packet
10 oz. can Rotel tomatoes do NOT drain
8 oz. spaghetti noodles uncooked
3 cups water
4 oz. cheddar cheese shredded
½ cup chopped cilantro
Heat olive oil in a 12 inch skillet over medium heat. Brown ground beef and onion in skillet until meat is no longer pink and onions are soft and translucent.
Add taco seasoning, Rotel tomatoes (including juice), spaghetti noodles, and water.
Bring to a boil over high heat. Once water comes to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove from heat. Sprinkle half of the cheese into the pan and stir to distribute the cooked spaghetti and cheese throughout the pan.
Top with remaining cheese and cilantro.
