Spaghetti Squash Enchilada Bowls

Gosh am I loving all things spaghetti squash right now. SO dang tasty, SO super easy, SO incredibly versatile. I just LOVE it!! And so does my family. When I saw this recipe on Skinny Taste, I knew I had to make it. So glad I did because it was delicious. When we ate it, I served it with a bowl of our favorite sweet potato tortilla chips from Food Should Taste Good. Those chips are the best! I used them to scoop up the squash enchiladas chips-and-salsa-style  - YUM!!!!

Here is the recipe straight from Skinny Taste:
  • 2 small spaghetti squash
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/8th tsp kosher salt
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/3 cups homemade enchilada sauce (click here) <I used store bought sauce to save time>
  • 1 cup part-skim shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • chopped cilantro and scallions for garnish
  • <I added a handful of pepitas/pumpkin seeds>
  • <Your favorite tortilla chips on the side - I love anything from Food Should Taste Good>
Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or two if they don't fit). Cut the squash in half lengthwise, and use a spoon to scrape out the seeds and soft yellow strands. Brush the inside of the squash with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Place the squash facedown on the baking sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the flesh easily pierces with a fork.

Once the squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to scrape the inside so the strands appear. Spoon enough of the enchilada sauce mixture inside each squash bowl until almost full. 

Top evenly with the cheese and sauce and transfer them to the oven and bake another 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the sauce is hot. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with cilantro and scallions and serve immediately!
