This dish is easy and delicious. It’s 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. We love this dish with sour cream, salsa and tortilla chips. This recipe also makes great leftovers in that is reheats well.

Mexican Baked Spaghetti

1 lb of ground beef

8 ounces of spaghetti noodles

2-3 cups of Mexican shredded cheese

1 can of diced tomatoes (I use Rotels Lime and Cilantro)

1 packet of taco seasoning

4 ounces of cream cheese, softened

1 (4 ounce) can of green chilies

1 (16 ounce) can of refried beans

Preheat oven to 350. Cook pasta according to package directions. Brown ground beef over medium heat until cooked through. Drain. Add taco seasoning, diced tomatoes, green chilis, cream cheese and refried beans to the ground beef  and cook over medium heat until cooked through and warm.

Grease a 9X13 baking dish and place half the noodles on the bottom. Spread meat mixture over noodles. Cover with half of the shredded cheese. Repeat. Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Serve with salsa, sour cream, guacamole and tortilla chips. Serves 6-8.

  1. I made this last Friday night just for something different during the quarantine. It was sooooooo good. We added sour cream and some green onion on top. My son ate all the leftovers the next day. This is definitely something I will make again and again!!!5 stars

  2. I’m so glad I found this recipe! It’s so good and my entire family loves it. Definitely will be making this dish a lot.5 stars

  3. This is delicious! Followed the directions with the exception of seasoning the ground beef some. I was worried I would struggle with pasta in a Mexican dish but I was wrong! I had all of the ingredients on hand and I love Mexican food so decided to go for it. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a tossed green salad and you are good to go. Thank you so much for the recipe.5 stars
