More About This Recipe
  • 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. Toss it all into the skillet. 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.
