Recipe Info

A ridiculous combination, but totally worth it!

1 500g box spaghetti
250-300g ground beef (or whatever ground meat you prefer)
Medium onion, diced
Medium bell pepper, diced
1 can, diced tomatoes
1 packet Taco seasoning of choice
Optional: 1 can, kidney or black beans
2 cloves garlic, minced
Taco Shells, Flour Tortillas, or tortilla chips (Doritos work well!)
2 fresh tomatoes, diced
1 packet, shredded lettuce
Shredded cheese
sour cream, salsa, taco sauce

Method: In a medium to large pot, cook the spaghetti according to package directions. While the spaghetti is cooking, you can make the rest. I usually cut the veggies first to save time! In a large frying pan, add a little olive oil or butter and heat to a sizzle. Add the garlic and brown it slightly, releasing the fragrance. Next, add the peppers and onions, cooking for 2-3 minutes. Add in the ground meat next and brown thoroughly. Then you will add in the canned tomatoes, taco seasoning, (and the beans if you are using them, drain the liquid.) Add a little bit of water, about 100 ml, Mix well!! bring back to a good boil, and reduce heat to let it simmer on low for about 20 minutes. Now make sure the spaghetti is done, drain, well and set aside. Once the taco meat mixture has thickened up, and most of the liquid has gone, add the spaghetti directly to the frying pan (I said get a large one!) If the frying pan is too small to do this, put it back in the large pot you used, and transfer the taco meat to the pot with the spaghetti instead! Use a spatula to get all the yummy goodness out of the pan into the pasta. Stir it up super well to coat the spaghetti, with all the taco deliciousness. Next, on some plates or in bowls (taco salad style with broken up chips), get your taco shell of choice, add the spaghetti taco mixture, then top as you would a regular taco, with the lettuce, tomato, cheese, and other toppings as you desire! Enjoy!
