Original recipe yields 4 servings



  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.

I'm not a vegetarian, but had bought a spaghetti squash intending on using it in an Italian dish as it was recommended. When it came time to cook, though, I wasn't feeling Italian. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. It was AMAZING! I've never raved about a dish so much before (I've never even left a rating on a past dish, but this one is well worth it). Instead of the packaged taco seasoning, I used a seasoning found on this site - Taco Seasoning I - it's de'lish! Everyone loved it, even my skeptical husband. It will be a regular.



This was a very yummy vegetarian taco stuffing. I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out superb!

This was excellent! The only changes I would make next time are to cook the onion and jalapeno in water as i don't think it would make a taste difference and to reduce the squash for awhile as there was quite a lot of liquid which made for soggy taco shells. Other than that the flavor and texture were amazing, AWESOME alternative to meat or soy/gluten products!
