This is a recipe that I came up with on the spur of the moment. My family, especially my 2 year old, loved it! Very kid-friendly. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and shredded lettuce, if desired.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package spaghetti
  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef
  • 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 (15 ounce) can corn, drained
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar taco sauce
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup tortilla chips, crushed

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking dish.
  2. 2 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and transfer pasta to prepared baking dish.
  3. 3 Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Stir in taco seasoning and water; simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add corn and taco sauce; cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes more.
  4. 4 Combine cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and 1 cup Cheddar cheese in a bowl until evenly mixed. Spread mixture over spaghetti. Spread beef mixture over sour cream mixture and top with remaining 1 cup Cheddar cheese and tortilla chips.
  5. 5 Bake in preheated oven until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

  1. Whoever made up this recipe and posted it should've mentioned that they have no idea what a good home cooked casserole is supposed to taste like and that they likely grew up eating generic brand Mac N Cheese out of the box. Although I think the Mac N Cheese is probably a step up. 30 - Read more ...
  2. Delicious twist on spagheti. Loved it! Will definately make again.
  3. My husband absolutely loved this spaghetti. I added onions and red bell peppers to the ground beef. I also included a can of black beans. Scrumptious! It did not need sour cream and lettuce in my opinion.
  4. This was much better than I expected and definitely better than it looked on the plate. I didn't have taco sauce so I used salsa instead and it came out very well. Nice creamy taste.
  5. I'm embarrassed to say that I changed this recipe because normally I only make alterations after following the recipe at least once, but I think the integrity of the recipe was in tact even after my substitutions. I used a full 16oz of spaghetti (broken in half prior to boiling), a can of Rotel (undrained) - Read more ...
  6. The whole family loved it! Next time I plan on adding chilies to spice it up.
  7. This is even better than you could ever think it is! I love the creamy cheesy layer between the pasta and the taco meat mixture. The corn and crunchy chips on the top add great texture. All I can think is that this will be my new go-to casserole to take to friends and prepare - Read more ...
  8. Very good similar to a taco hamburger helper. Will make again.

  10. The creamy layer made this dish for my family. 4 happy kids and 1 happy hubby! Will make again when I have extra taco meat.
