“This dish is actually a “marriage” of 2 distinctly different RZ recipes. It was created as a variation of my Tex-Mex Spaghetti Tex-Mex Spaghetti (Crock Pot Served), but was inspired by the spaghetti crust part of Bon in Michigan’s Ham & Swiss Asparagus Pie Ham and Swiss Asparagus Pie. With her kind permission, I have borrowed & repeated the spaghetti crust portion of her recipe + prep instructions related to it (as they appear in her recipe). I also admit to being guided by other ingredient amts & parts of her recipe. Thank you so much Bon in Michigan! – The “heat level” of this dish is controlled by the picante sauce you use, but can be raised or lowered by adding spices to suit your preferences or using a mild picante sauce. For a family dinner or small dinner party, all you need to complete your meal is a guacamole salad & a flan or sopaipillas for dessert. Enjoy!”
