Expert Tips

This spaghetti is inspired by the famous Cincinnati chili, which consists of chili served over pasta.

For spicier spaghetti, use chorizo sausage for part of all of the ground beef.

One 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes plus 2 tablespoons of canned diced green chiles can be used in place of the can of diced tomatoes with green chiles.
