  • 4 tablespoons dry taco seasoning mix

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon paprika

  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®)

  • 1 pound 80% lean ground beef

  • 1 (16 ounce) package dry spaghetti

  • 1 (32 ounce) container chicken broth

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can cream of chicken soup

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • ¼ (8 ounce) package processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®), thinly sliced


  1. Heat olive oil in a pot over medium heat; stir in diced onion, taco seasoning, garlic powder, and paprika. Sauté, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.

  5. Cook pasta until tender, yet firm to the bite, 7 to 12 minutes. Mix in cream of chicken soup. Cook for 5 minutes, then reduce heat to low. Add shredded Cheddar cheese; mix in.

  6. Add one slice of Velveeta® per person, or 4 around the outside and 1 in the middle.

  7. Turn off the heat and cover the pot until cheese starts to melt. Serve.
