Why You’ll Love This Amazing Mexican Pasta Dish

Time-Saver Meal – This spaghetti recipe is quick to prepare, especially when you’re in a rush. Basically, you just are chopping vegetables, opening a few cans and browning before adding the rest of the ingredients for the sauce and cooking the spaghetti. Your whole dinner can be ready in about 30 minutes!

Healthier – This Mexican spaghetti has gooey, cheesy taste but using half the amount of cheese similar recipes have without missing it or compromising that creamy, smooth texture. Black beans also contribute extra protein, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber to help regulate blood sugar, heart health, cancer prevention to lowering your risk to age-related macular degeneration and cataracts to losing weight. Peppers also contain capsaicin for stimulating the body’s metabolism for weight control, but also for fighting inflammation. Onions like garlic belong to the Allium family of plants, specific for specialized compounds to benefit health from improving blood sugar levels to strengthening bone health.

I also only use grass-fed beef from ButcherBox, which does not have antibiotics, growth hormones or stomach turning additives in the grains those animals receive. Though you may think this is just a gimmick to get you to buy ButcherBox, being that I’m a #ButcherBoxPartner, but I honestly refuse to eat supermarket meats and poultry after researching all the gross extras fed to those animals meant for our food supply. Read the proof yourself and then decide. However, if you buy, I would appreciate if you go through my link. Thank you so much if you do!

Thrifty – Unlike more costlier cuts of beef, this spaghetti dish uses less expensive ground beef. Besides that, I noticed that you don’t end up with a skillet full of fat using grass-fed beef from ButcherBox, which is healthier and more economical, like you do when browning other ground beef. My recipe also has beans, veggies and cheese to a pound of pasta that can stretch food dollars with how much this recipe can make as well as a satisfying meal.

Here’s a great spaghetti cooking tip when making the sauce. You’ll want to reserve two or three tablespoons of the pasta water that you boiled the spaghetti in for adding into this Mexican spaghetti sauce. The reason for this is that the extra starch helps the spaghetti to adhere better.

My Mexican spaghetti is one of my family’s favorite meals so here’s hoping that you’ll put it to the test and love it as much as we do.
