"I used half chicken and half pork instead of beef. I also used the recipe for Taco Seasoning on recipes.sparkpeople.com instead of a purchased seasoning mix. I was pleasantly surprised how good it tastes.

We will enjoy the leftovers that I will freeze in individual servings for quick meals later."

"This is a one-pot wonder...quick and easy and absolutely delicious. I add a dollop (or two!) of sour cream on the side. One caution: if you're like me and don't religiously measure ingredients...go easy on the pasta. Too much dilutes the zesty flavor of the sauce, so I always wait until the spaghetti's softened up a bit to see how much is in there."

"I have made this receipe several times a year for quite some time. It's a nice and unexpected change from regular spaghetti"
