    I ran across this recipe on pinterest and it sounded so good so thought I’d give it a try. It’s just me so I halved the recipe but made exactly as written. It was just meh..had no flavor (which was shocking considering the Rotel). I used the Mexican cheese blend, cooked the spaghetti in water with bouillon. Had to salt it to give it a little flavor. I was so disappointed. I won’t make again.

    It’s bland. I would add some seasoning like taco seasoning and even some green and red peppers would be nice. It’s a great base to start with though.
