Chicken Fajita Spaghetti Squash Bowls that are full of yummy Mexican-flavored chicken and tons of veggies! They are a great healthy, gluten-free dinner option when you are craving Mexican food.
Initially, I had planned to grab a few acorn squash at the grocery store. However, it seemed like everyone else who shops at the South Austin Central Market had the same idea. One tiny, measly acorn squash remained. Knowing that would hardly be enough to feed Cohl, I decided to go with another option: Spaghetti Squash Bowls. (Want to see what I made when I finally got my hands on some acorn squash? Check out these Stuffed Acorn Squash with Apple and Pumpkin Seeds!)
Having only made spaghetti squash a few times with marinara sauce and meatballs, I decided to change it up a bit. Ever since we’ve moved to Austin, I feel as if a part of me is missing due to the lack of San Antonio’s authentic Mexican restaurants. (I use the word “authentic” because you actually can find true Mexican food without all of the Tex-Mex greasiness thrown in when you’re in San Antonio.) Why oh why do I crave fajitas and salsa so much?!
Want to know a different way to cook Spaghetti Squash Bowls?
In an effort to try and spice this spaghetti squash up a bit, I decided to mix up one of my favorite meals with this Autumn harvest vegetable. Instead of cooking the squash the way I had learned in the past–by placing the cut halves face down in an inch of water and baking– I decided to spread a little olive oil, S&P and roast it without water. It was heavenly!
Also, I decided to concoct my own fajita spice mix. It turned out great! Might just have to try making a big batch of this chicken mixture again with some good ole’ fashioned corn tortillas. The recipe instructions give you a step-by-step on how you can have the entire meal ready in just under an hour, so do with it what you please. Hope you enjoy!
