Ingredients
  

  • 2 small Spaghetti Squash cup in half
  • ½ Onion diced
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic chopped
  • 1 cup Corn
  • 1 can Black Beans rinsed and drained. Or 1 ½ cups cooked black beans
  • 1 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Coriander
  • 1 tbsp Jalapenos
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp enchilada sauce
  • ¼ cup Cilantro extra for garnish
  • 1 cup Mexican Cheese 
  • Other optional toppings: chopped avocado, hot sauce, and/or sour cream

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 425 F, cut spaghetti squash in half, and scrape out the seeds. 
  • Place on a lined or greased baking sheet, cut-side faced down, and place in the oven for 40 minutes (or until fork tender.)
  • While they are roasting, make the filling: over medium heat, saute the onion in a skillet with 1 tbsp olive oil, for two minutes. Add garlic and sauté for 3-4 more minutes until garlic becomes fragrant and golden.
  • Turn the heat to medium-low and add jalapeño, corn, and peppers, and stir occasionally for 5 minutes. Add beans, spices, salt, and enchilada sauce and bring to a simmer. Turn heat off and add in the cilantro.
  • When spaghetti squash is tender, (pierce with a knife through the skin) carefully, using a fork, fluff and stir the inside of the squash, scraping it away from the sides. You will have enough filling for four bowls.
  • Mix together the spaghetti squash and veggie mixture. If adding cheese (or cooked meat) mix a little into the squash and veggie mixture and use the remaining for the top. 
  • Sprinkle the tops with cheese and return the squash mixtures into the oven for and additional 10-20 minutes.
  • Garnish with cilantro and any toppings you desire. Enjoy!
