2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound ground beef
¼ cup yellow onions
¼ cup taco seasoning (1 packet)
10 ounces Rotel tomatoes
8 ounces spaghetti noodles, uncooked
3 cups water
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
½ cup cilantro, chopped


Heat olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat.
Brown ground beef and onion in the skillet until the meat is no longer pink and onions are soft and translucent.
Add the taco seasoning, Rotel tomatoes (including juice), spaghetti noodles, and water.
Bring to a boil over high heat. Once the water comes to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove from heat. Sprinkle half of the cheese into the pan and stir to distribute the cooked spaghetti and cheese throughout the pan.
Top with remaining cheese and cilantro. Serve.
