|Mix canned chili in with your favorite pasta to make a delicious Southwestern style pasta dish. Pictured here is Southwestern Ziti.|
As an adult I have often made a variant of this delicious concoction, only much simpler. When I am in a pinch for time or just do not feel like spending lots of time cooking, I have cooked pasta, most often spaghetti, and then taken 1 or two cans of Hormel Chili and mixed it into the pasta for a quick and tasty meal. A spiced up variant of spaghetti that I have dubbed Mexican or Southwestern Spaghetti and it can't get much simpler to make. I have also used various pastas such as rotini or ziti each of which gives a different twist and flavor to the meal. So if you are in a pinch for time or just want to spice up your pasta, give it a try!
