Sometimes I lay awake at night and ponder meaningful, important things.
Things such as,“Am I too old for purple nail polish?” “Do those yellow shoes look as good as I think they do with that blue dress?” “Is my favorite dinner really tacos or is it possibly spaghetti?”
Generally, I come up with the answers, “Never,” “Absolutely,” and “Let’s experiment in the morning.”
So, I still don’t know if tacos or spaghetti are my favorite, but I have to call this experiment a success anyway. Because now there is a thing that exists in this world that is known as the taco spaghetti skillet dinner and it is glorious, my friends.
Let’s do this.
First up, brown some ground chicken. Turkey or beef both work equally as well. You do you.
Break up some spaghetti and toss it in the skillet with some taco seasoning. Strangely enough, you do not actually have to boil spaghetti before eating it. Dig in!
Just kidding. Put the fork down and pick up the can opener.
Pour in some fire roasted diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and green chiles. Don’t forget to add a cup of water.
Cook ‘er up. The liquid is going to get all thick and amazing. The noodles are going to soak up the flavor. The meat will be tender and juicy.
Aaaaaand it’s going to taste like a taco had a one night stand with a bowl of spaghetti. Good stuff, my friends.
