Spaghetti Red facts for kids
Spaghetti Red is a spaghetti dish where the noodles are covered with chili. It is served in the central United States and originates at Fred and Red's in Joplin, Missouri. Typically a mild, bean-less chili is used in spaghetti red, such as the type used on hot dogs.
Spaghetti Red can be served with hot sauce, vinegar, ketchup, and onions are sometimes used for variety. Additional condiments such as pickles, mild shredded cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese and even mustard are sometimes used.
Regional and restaurant-specific variations include Cincinnati chili, American chop suey, chili spaghetti, and chili mac. Restaurants such as Skyline Chili and Steak 'n Shake would call the noodle-and-chili combination "2-way chili". Adding ingredients such as shredded cheese, onions and beans re-christen the dish, "3-way", "4-way" and "5-way" respectively.
