Recently, I craved an enchilada...While simultaneously on a mission to eat fewer carbs. Out of my tricky situation, this spaghetti squash enchilada boat recipe was born.
Spaghetti squash aren't hard to cook, you can bake them in the oven or use a microwave. And you can save time by cooking the enchilada filling while the squash bakes. You'll be devouring them in no time.
Spaghetti Squash Enchilada Boats
- Prep Time:15 mins
- Cook Time:1 hr 30 mins
- Total Time:1 hr 45 mins
- 4 spaghetti squash
- 1 pack raw ground chicken
- 1 pack mushrooms optional
- 1 pack shredded 4-cheese Mexican blend
- Green onion optional
- 1 can red or green enchilada sauce
- Olive oil
- Garlic powder
It is also really easy to reheat so if you're cooking for one, you can just microwave everything to eat it up again. I left the cooked squash, enchilada filling, and cheese separate, so when I wanted to eat this again I heated it all up in the microwave. I've found the squash needs to be heated up first for about 2 minutes then add the enchilada filling and the cheese on top and heat that up for about 3 minutes.
