Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 6 -8 servings


Garnishes (optional)

  • crushed tortilla chips
  • more cheese
  • diced tomatoes
  • diced avocadoes
  • chopped cilantro
  • sour cream


  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions in generously salted water. Rinse and drain. Drizzle and toss with a little olive oil to keep from sticking. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, brown ground been and onions in a large pot/Dutch oven over medium high heat, crumbling beef as you cook. Drain off grease.
  • Add garlic, beef bouillon and all seasonings and cook an additional 30 seconds over medium high heat. Stir in tomatoes and green chilies and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add spaghetti and stir until evenly coated in sauce.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cheese a handful at a time until melted. Season with additional salt and pepper/cayenne pepper to taste. Top with desired garnishes.


*The sauce (without the spaghetti) freezes beautifully.
