Spaghetti Tacos

Hola Amigos!...Have you ever wonder how Marge Simpson's Jellybean cookies tastes like? how much does a Brontosaurus Burger from the Flintstones's really weighs? How about Peggy Hill's Frito Pie with Wolf Chili? Last but not least...what's is the secret formula to make a SpongeBob's Krabby Patty (or should I say a Krusty Crab Krabby Patty)? Ok...by now y'all are thinking I totally lost my mind, which is not too far from the truth but in my defense...it has to do with what we are having for dinner tonight...iCarly's Spaghetti Tacos, when you have picky eaters, you have to get creative people!

If you have kids, grand kids or just plain grew up watching some shows like the Flintstones and Scooby Doo (btw, what's on those Scooby Snacks?) you are familiar with all the foods I mentioned before. We used to love watching iCarly and the thing we remember the most is the gang having spaghetti tacos for dinner. Mine might not be exactly like Spencer's but, close enough and more appetizing to my family keeping the essence of the original dish! So put on your favorite Orange Nickelodeon apron and let's get to work on this recipe!

Spaghetti Tacos a la iCarly

1 1/2 pound Ground Beef
1 pound box Spaghetti
1 jar of your Favorite Spaghetti Sauce
1 envelope Taco Seasoning
1 can Diced Tomatoes 
1 half Onion Chopped 
1 TBSP oil
Corn Tortillas
1/2 cup your favorite Salsa
Mozzarella Cheese slices
Pepperoni Slices

Cook the pasta to your liking at the same time you are preparing the sauce.
On a skillet on medium heat and the TSBS of oil cook onion until transparent. Add ground beef and brown, add the taco seasoning, can of tomatoes and spaghetti sauce. Cook everything for 10-15 minutes until some of the sauce and tomatoes get absorbed by the beef and starts to thicken. Set aside.
Heat oven at 350 degree.
In another skillet and a little bit of butter or oil, warm up as many corn tortillas as you want to make for each person at the dinner table. Once they are warm they become easier to manipulate. Put a teaspoon of salsa on each tortilla, top it of with a slice of mozzarella cheese and finally a slice of pepperoni. Roll and place on a baking cookie sheet and bake on your pre-heated oven  for 4 minutes or till they are crispy.

 If you want you could  drop them on a frying pan until golden.
To serve, mix your already cooked and drained spaghetti with the meat sauce and serve with a mozzarella pepperoni taco. Top the pasta with Shredded Cheddar Cheese or Taco Mix Cheese!


This is not as messy as iCarly's but it is equally tasty!

Not only you are getting the "taco" flavor on your meat sauce, but you have a tasty mozzarella pepperoni Taquito to go with it instead of bread!

Cheese Mozzarella Pepperoni Taquitos!, these guys are good all by themselves!

Sometimes we have to think outside the "chihuahua box" and have some fun with your food, a fun "no fuss" family dinner!

Thank You for tuning in today and i hope you give this fun family night dinner a try! The worse thing that can happen is that at the end of the meal you all break out  Random Dancing!

Remember, everything tastes better when you are having fun and a Pinch of Love!
