Burrito Spaghetti Squash Boats

It’s SUPER easy to make this recipe vegetarian. Simply sub out the beef for extra veggies! Bell peppers, spinach, and red onions would all be great additions.

INGREDIENTS FOR SPAGHETTI SQUASH

2 medium spaghetti squash, halved, seeds removed

1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp Kosher salt

2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tbsp 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 cups chopped cherry tomatoes

1 cup corn, canned and drained or frozen 

1 cup shredded Monterey jack

1/2 cup 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.
