What a delicious way to prepare spaghetti. I generally use ground turkey, but chose to use ground round instead. I added an extra can of diced tomatoes and a can of rotel as well. We also used shredded cotija cheese. Will definitely make this delicious dish again.

This was a terrific meal and quite spicy, which works for this family. I used a 15 oz. can of regular canned corn because it's what I had on hand. Since I used almost 1-1/2 lbs. of ground beef, I needed more liquid so added a can of Rotel tomatoes. I cooked the beef with chopped onion, drained the fat, returned all to the pan and proceeded to add the remaining ingredients. I just can't bring myself to leave the meat undrained in any recipe. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.
