YIELD: Serves 4



INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion

  5. Add onion, jalapeño and bell pepper and cook for 2 minutes or until soft.

  6. Add beans, corn and chili powder; cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute longer.

  8. Fill squash halves with filling, mounding mixture in the center, and serve.
