  • 1 large spaghetti squash, halved and seeds removed
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package dry taco seasoning mix
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeds removed and diced
  • 1 pinch salt, or to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place the two halves of the squash with the cut sides facing down into a baking dish.
  2. Bake the squash in the preheated oven until tender (30-40 minutes).
  3. Strip the squash from the rind with a fork into short strands and set aside.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the onion and jalapeno pepper in the hot oil until the onion is browned and soft (7-10 minutes). Add the squash and taco seasoning; cook and stir the mixture for an additional 5 minutes. Season with salt. Stuff into taco shells to serve.
