Chili Spaghetti

Chili and Spaghetti

I’m on a soup kick! Thanks to my mom who has been making a ton of soups, I have some awesome new recipes to share with you. I’ve never had this next recipe before, but everyone in the fam loved it! It’s perfect for a cold day, and if you’re a fan of spaghetti AND chili, then you’ll LOVE this soup recipe.

This chili recipe comes from my friend’s family and is super tasty. Honestly, I have never seen noodles in chili before but it was the perfect ingredient for this soup. It just made it that much heartier and tastier!

You really can’t go wrong combining two delicious dishes in one to create this delicious Chili Spaghetti.

Can This be Made in a Pot?

Of course!! We like the slow cooker recipes since you can usually forget about it for a few hours, but this can also be made in a pot if you are looking for a quicker version. Just follow these easy steps…

  1. Brown meat with salt and garlic. Transfer to a large pot.
  2. Add tomato sauce, stewed tomatoes, water, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, chili powder and beans. Cook on medium heat for 30 minutes.
  3. While soup is heating, cook up spaghetti noodles as directed on box and add to chili. Serve warm.

My mom and dad’s church always has a fall fair and chili cook off, and I’m determined to make this for it! Some chilis just have so many ingredients and my kids tend to favor the simpler versions. This one is VERY simple – doesn’t have any crazy ingredients and is so easy to make. WIN-WIN!

    1. I live in Indiana all my life and spaghetti and chili is not just a Kentucky thing. It’s the only way I’ve ever had it and the only way I ever want it

  1. 4 stars
    Our Baltimore version has chopped onions & green peppers in it. We just use can spaghetti which already has tomato sauce & saves time. No sugar.

  2. 5 stars
    I made a few adjustments. Added a large chopped onion , 2 tablespoons of tomato puree. I like a thicker sauce. I/2 package on spaghetti and cooked it on medium for 2 hours. Delicious

    1. I’ve never tried tuna with this recipe so I’m not sure how it would turn out but if you try it let me know. I’d love to hear!

  3. I was raised on this. Its called Cincinnati Chili! My Mom was from Ohio and made it all the time!
