My weeknight meals are usually thrown together in a hurry. I have a crazy schedule (as I’m sure most of you do too!) so I never known when I’ll be home from work. So I tend to just throw things together for dinner.
Today’s post is a recipe that spawned from one of those nights: taco spaghetti!
One night, I came home with the intention of making tacos for dinner. I made the taco meat, cut the tomatoes, and got the rest of my toppings ready. But my tortillas had gone bad. Womp womp.
I had already made the meat and toppings so I couldn’t let it go to waste. I looked around the pantry to see what could replace the tortillas…Rice? That could work. But is it too obvious?
And then I saw it: spaghetti! I had just seen a special on TV about a BBQ spot in Memphis that served BBQ spaghetti and it looked amazing! So why not make a version of that and call it taco spaghetti?! I had all the toppings for tacos so it would be perfect. And so super simple to make.
