Spaghetti Squash Taco Boats

Oh my goodness was this delicious! What a healthy dish that offers a TON of flavor! You have got to try this Spaghetti Squash Taco Boat recipe!

It does take a bit of time since you have to bake the squash first. After cut in half, I sprayed each side of the spaghetti squash with olive oil then sprinkled it with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. When it came out of the oven and was cool enough to shred, I couldn’t help but sample a bit. It was SO GOOD! The flavor was amazing. I could have stopped making dinner right then and been happy just eating the squash.

Once the spaghetti squash was shredded, I added a big spoonful of the meat mixture and then topped it with Pico de Gallo. I used store bought Pico instead of making fresh so that saved me a little time. I choose not to add cheese to the taco boats. Kenxie sprinkled a little cheese on hers but it really was delicious without it.

Filling dish that was so yummy…my mouth is watering just thinking about having it again. I will surely be adding this to our menu again soon!
