Mexican Baked Spaghetti The Southern Lady Cooks


This dish is easy and delicious. This baked spaghetti is the perfect weeknight dinner. It’s simple to throw together and is fabulous comfort food. If you happen to have leftovers, they reheat great! I always make up this casserole when I know my family has a busy week ahead of them. It’s one of our favorites.

Ingredients Needed for Mexican Baked Spaghetti:

Ground beef or ground turkey

Spaghetti noodles

Mexican shredded cheese

Diced tomatoes (I use Rotel’s Lime and Cilantro)

Packet of taco seasoning

Cream cheese, softened

Can of green chilies

Can of refried beans

Recipe Notes: This is a very versatile recipe.  Add in a can of black beans if you aren’t a fan of refried beans. Add whichever toppings your family likes best. You could easily use ground turkey or ground chicken instead of ground beef. Garnish with sour cream, salsa, guacamole, and tortilla chips.

Recipe Comments: “Wow, this was excellent! So glad I found this recipe. I found that it reheats very well, so my husband and I enjoyed it for 3 nights!!! It’s terrific with a little sour cream, jalapeno, and tortilla chips! Thanks so much for the recipe!”-Dee
