Vegetarian Stuffed Squash

Mexican Vegetarian Stuffed Squash

For two months now I’ve been hosting Supper Club Dinners in San Diego. For the first dinner in September I chose three dishes from my cookbook “Buffalo Style” to prepare.

For Octobers dinner I wanted to make my deliciously unique and amazing Pumpkin Enchiladas for the main course. After that was decided I knew the rest of my menu would be “Mexican Fall Inspired”.

Mexican Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

For the first course I decided to prepare a stuffed squash, because what’s more fall then squash? I chose spaghetti squash because I love the flavor and texture. To stuff inside the squash I decided to use the Black Bean Corn Relish and Avocado Sauce that I topped my Crispy Cactus Tacos with a couple of weeks before.

Ever since I made those tacos, I’ve been thinking of any and every way I could incorporate more of that relish and sauce into my life (it was that good!) My friend Courtney can attest to that. She made the tacos at home and text me to tell me that she just kept eating the relish and sauce by itself with a spoon because it was so delicious!

Vegan Mexican Filled Spaghetti Squash

The first time I made this dish to try it out (and take these beautiful pictures) I ate half of a large spaghetti squash, which was plenty for lunch! For the dinner I sliced each half of squash into three pieces and served that as an appetizer filled with the relish.

That’s the great thing about this dish, it can be served as an appetizer, lunch or dinner, it’s gluten free, vegan, simple and so scrumptious!
