  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). 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 to 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 to 10 minutes. Add the squash and taco seasoning; cook and stir the mixture for 5 minutes more. Season with salt. Stuff into taco shells to serve.

Kids wouldn't eat it as prepared. I used the idea and the second time added a can of kidney beans with the taco seasoning. I pureed it all together and it made a fantastic and healthy bean dip. ...

I knew that I couldn't eat the jalapeno, but this recipe looked good anyway. The spaghetti squash I had was rather small, so I only used about half the dry taco seasoning, and served them with g...
