Spicy Spaghetti Squash with Black Beans

Spaghetti squash is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin B6, and manganese. It is a fair source of niacin, pantothenic acid, and potassium. I made a delicious dish yesterday using spaghetti squash with beans..Here is the recipe!
  • 1 medium spaghetti squash  
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño chili, seeded, minced
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, or green chopped
  • 1 cup black beans, rinsed and drained well
  • 1 tomatoe 
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin 
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice 
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
Start by roasting the spaghetti squash. First, cut it in half. 
Use a sharp knife to cut.

I put a little bit of olive oil garlic and sprinkle with salt ,pepper
Place squash face down in a baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees F for 35-40 minutes.

For the filling, heat oil in a large pan and sauté onion, jalapeño and red pepper for 2 minutes. 

Add beans, tomato, cumin and chili powder; saute 1 minute longer.

When the squash is finished roasting, scoop the flesh from the shell.
Add cooked squash, cilantro, lime juice and salt to pan; cook 1 minute until heated through. Fill squash halves with filling, mounding mixture in the center
This was so yummy!!!
