Burrito Spaghetti Squash Boats

November 19, 2018

Here is something unique and different to try at your next gathering or tonight for dinner!

INGREDIENTS:

FOR SPAGHETTI SQUASH

2 medium spaghetti squash, halved, seeds removed

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. cumin


FOR FILLING

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 lb. ground beef

1 tbsp. taco seasoning mix

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 (15-oz.) can black beans

1 1/2 c. chopped cherry tomatoes

1 c. corn, canned and drained or frozen

1 c. shredded Monterey jack

1/2 c. shredded cheddar

2 tbsp. freshly chopped cilantro (optional)


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Drizzle cut sides of spaghetti squash with oil and season with salt, chili powder, and cumin. Place cut side down on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Roast until tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool slightly. Using a fork, break up squash strands.

  2. Meanwhile, make filling: In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Add ground beef, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon. Cook until beef is no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Drain fat.

  3. Stir in taco seasoning, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in black beans, cherry tomatoes, and corn.

  4. Fill each spaghetti squash with beef mixture and top with cheeses. Return to oven to melt cheese, 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve
