Get ready for a treat with Mexican Chicken Spaghetti for dinner!
I mentioned last week I am on a pantry and freezer clean out splurge lately! That means lots of go to pantry style meals coming up. One that may go down as one of my all time favorites that we have had lately is this Mexican Chicken Spaghetti.
How do you make Mexican Chicken Spaghetti?
When I started making it, I had an idea in mind but really was not sure how I would execute it. I started by looking through the pantry and found tomato sauce, black beans, and Rotel.
I knew that I could make something delicious using those ingredients. Next up, I was really craving some spaghetti.
When I was growing up that was one meal my mom made regularly; although hers was pretty much pasta and sauce. Now, I have learned that you can really make spaghetti a delicious one dish meal!
Just looking at these pictures is making me crave this all over again! I added a little sour cream to mine then I ate it with some tortilla chips too. It was amazing!
This can also be made using ground beef too; however, I was trying to cut down on calories and red meats so I used ground chicken instead.

Is this something that would freeze well?
Kristy Still says
It should freezer cook well, similar to freezer cooking spaghetti. Just be sure that it’s sealed really well to avoid the noodles getting freezer burn.
What is Rotel? Sorry I’ve heard of it just don’t know what it is and don’t even know if you can buy it up here in Canada.
It’s Diced Tomatoes mixed with Chopped Green Chilies. You can buy each of those and make it too.
What is Rotel? We don’t have that in Mexico… there’s nothing Mexican about this recipe, we don’t eat spaghetti like that.
Rotel is Diced Tomatoes mixed with Green Chilies that you can buy here in the stores, http://www.ro-tel.com/. I’m in OK, we are Tex-Mex area.
Could this work well with shredded chicken?
Yes, it should work really well with shredded chicken also with ground beef too.
