Mexican Skillet Spaghetti
Low Calorie Recipe
Mexican cuisine inspired skillet dish with chicken breast, onions, bell peppers, tomato sauce, taco seasoning, spaghetti pasta and Cheddar cheese.
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1 pound ground chicken breasts, skinless
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1/2 cup bell peppers, chopped
15 ounces tomato sauce
4 cups water
1 envelope taco seasoning mix
8 ounces thin spaghetti, uncooked
1/2 cup fat free Cheddar cheese, shredded
In a 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken, onions, and bell peppers. Cook until chicken is no longer pink and vegetables are tender. Stir in tomato sauce, water, and seasoning mix. Bring to a boil.
Add spaghetti. Reduce heat. Simmer covered until spaghetti is tender, 25 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese.
Not all ground poultry is as healthy as one may think. Ground turkey or chicken often includes the skin and dark meat, adding a lot of fat and calories.
Look for lean or breast on the label to ensure it includes only breast meat, which is much leaner.
