Cheesy Baked Spaghetti Squash


Cheesy Baked Spaghetti Squash

Chili-lime chicken, beans, spaghetti squash and cheese… This is a tasty combination that we love to make.

What you need

  • 1 (3-ounce) cooked Chicken Breast, cut into chunks
  • 1 medium Spaghetti Squash (about 4 cups cooked)
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup fresh Salsa
  • 3 tablespoons fresh Coriander, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Sea Salt & Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Chili Flakes, optional

How you make it

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F and line your baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Cut the squash in half, rub with inside with olive oil and sprinkle sea salt & pepper. Place face down on the baking sheet & bake for about 25-30 minutes. The edges on the inside should be a bit browned and shreds should form easily with a fork.
  3. Meanwhile, toss the chili flakes with the cheeses and stir the fresh coriander into the salsa.
  4. When the squash is ready, take it out and let it stand for 5 minutes. Turn the oven to the broiler setting. Fully shred the squash, leaving the shell intact. You will be stuffing it!
  5. Transfer the spaghetti squash to a mixing bowl. Stir in the salsa, followed by the beans and chicken. Split the mixture in half and stuff each squash shell. Top with the shredded cheese.
  6. Place them back on the same baking sheet & broil until bubbly and browned. About 3-4 minutes.
