Spaghetti Red is a spaghetti dish where the noodles are covered with chili. It is served in the central United States and of unclear origins. 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,[citation needed] American chop suey,[citation needed] 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.
