All the yummy goodness of two favorites combined in one delicious dinner!
6 ounces dried spaghetti, broken into thirds
1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup water
1 (1.25 oz) envelope taco seasoning mix
2 (2-1/4 oz) cans sliced ripe olives, drained
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup salsa (your choice)
1 (4.5 oz) can chopped green chilies, undrained
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain and set aside.
2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef and onion until the meat is brown and the onion is tender; drain. Add the water and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the cooked spaghetti, olives, 3/4 cup of the cheddar cheese, salsa and green chilies.
3. Transfer mixture to an 11×7-inch (2-quart) baking dish sprayed with cooking spray or lightly greased. Cover with foil and bake 15 to 20 minutes or until hot. Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheddar cheese. Serve with the shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, tortilla chips and sour cream. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
