Burrito Spaghetti Squash Boats

Winter brings cold, gloomy weather. Warm up with these delicious burrito spaghetti squash boats! Squash is not only delicious, but it provides a healthy amount of vitamin A, fiber, and folate! This recipe brings all the comfort that a big pasta meal would bring, but it leaves you feeling more energized and filled with nutrients. Even better, a medium sized spaghetti squash only costs around $2.00, making it budget friendly! This recipe takes both pasta and burritos and puts a fun, healthy spin on them. 


For Squash   

- 2 medium spaghetti squash, halved, seeds removed  

- 1 tbsp. olive oil      

- Salt        

- 1/2 tsp. chili powder

- 1/2 tsp. cumin 

For Filling

- 1 tbsp. olive oil                                                                                    - 1 tbsp. taco seasoning

- 1/2 onion, chopped                                                                           - Salt

- 2 cloves garlic, minced                                                                     - Cracked peper

- 1 lb. ground meat (I used 99% lean ground turkey!)           - 1 can black beans 


- 1 cup Monterey jack cheese

- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar

- 2tbsp. cilantro (optional)


- Preheat oven to 400. Lightly coat the squash with olive oil, salt, chili powder and cumin. Place the squash face down on baking sheet and roast until tender. Using a fork, comb through to break apart the spaghetti strands.

- In a large skillet, add all the filling ingredients until meat is cooked all the way through (no more pink). Stir in taco seasoning.

- Fill each spaghetti squash boat with topping and top with cheese. Put back into oven until cheese is nice and melty (about five minutes).

I also topped mine with salsa and fresh avocado! Try this warming recipe next time you’re looking to try out a new recipe, you will not regret it!
