How to make Taco Spaghetti:
Start by cooking your spaghetti according to package directions. In a separate skillet cook your ground beef. Once it’s cooked, drain, and then season it with taco seasoning. I love using my easy homemade Taco Seasoning. Drain your spaghetti and return it to the pot. Add ground beef and Rotel to your spaghetti, mix, then place in a casserole dish. Top with shredded cheese and pop it in the oven. Allow your cheese to melt, because everything tastes better with melted cheese on top! Remove and top with fresh cilantro and sour cream.
