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.
