Mexican Style Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is so groovy. I can’t believe  there is a vegetable that can disguise itself well enough as spaghetti to be a replacement for the noodles! (except for this recipe, because I think it would actually be very strange to make a mexican style noodle bake–but that’s irrelevant). This is a delicious recipe, and much healthier than most mexican dishes. This recipe was adapted from Julie at Baked In.

First step is to prepare the spaghetti squash. It is SO much easier to cook the squash in the microwave, before I prepared this recipe I had only made it in the oven, and it took much longer, and was much harder to handle. I recommend this way!
