Spaghetti with a Kick

If you don’t know, I’ve been house-sitting all week for a friend of mine who had to go to Texas. However, her youngest son, who was supposed to house sit for someone else, has been here off and on throughout the week. On Wednesday, I wasn’t expecting him when I came home from doing some work at g-ma’s house, but here he was and he’d made spaghetti for dinner.

“You can have some if you want.”

“Okay, wow, thanks,” I said.

“It’s a bit spicy, though,” said Josh.

I gave him the Spock eyebrow and said, “What do you put in it?”

“Some Tapatio sauce and some chili powder.”

“Really? I might have to taste that.”

Sure enough, I tasted it and it definitely has a kick to it, so here’s his recipe in case you’d like to try it. You can follow him on Twitter here, but he hasn’t tweeted much. Let’s show him how the Twittersphere works.

Spaghetti with a Kick


1 can tomato sauce

1 Tblsp chili powder

Tapatio hot sauce, to taste

salt and pepper

1 lb hamburger, browned

1 lb spaghetti noodles

Brown the hamburger and drain the grease. Pour tomato sauce into a pot, add Tapatio sauce (or your own preferred hot sauce) and chili powder. Stir. Add salt and pepper to taste. Boil noodles. Add hamburger to sauce. Strain noodles. Mix with sauce when it’s finished.

Looks like a pretty simple recipe. Give it a try! It tasted great.
