Okay, I confess! I put this recipe on here because I like the name. I was trolling around the recipe websites and found this super-spicy recipe for Mexican spaghetti on AllRecipes.Com. 

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 3 tablespoons dried minced onion, divided

  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder, divided

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • 1 (16 ounce) package fideo noodles

  • 3 cups hot water, or as needed

  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin

  • 2 tablespoons onion powder

  • 1 cube beef bouillon

  • 3 thin strips of green bell pepper



  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, 1 tablespoon dried onion, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in the hot skillet until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Transfer beef to a bowl.
  2. Heat canola oil in the same skillet over medium heat; cook and stir fideo noodles in the hot oil until browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Add ground beef and enough hot water to cover the noodles; stir in tomato sauce, 2 tablespoons dried onion, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, cumin, onion powder, beef bouillon, green bell pepper, salt, and black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
