Spaghetti Squash Mexicana

Another successful V-con recipe. It’s not quite as pretty since I used pinto beans instead of black beans as the recipe called for, but I had just made a pot of homemade pintos and actually didn’t even have a can of black beans. I also didn’t have all the ingredients for the yummy pineapple salsa to go with it, so I sliced some avocado and used my favorite local tomato salsa for the topping. But I did have the basics – spaghetti squash, corn, and plenty of cilantro – spicy and delish!

Oh, this looks good! I like your substitutions! Avocado can join my dinners anytime!

I have not made anything from this recipe book yet. I'm seeing now that I should open it up and pick some of these recipes! I've been hearing great things, and yours certainly looks like one I'd love!

That is such a cool photo--like Our Lady of Guadalupe in an entree. So appropriate for the meal...

that actually looks great! I love how fellow bloggers keep pointing out recipes that I didn't even realize are in that book!

Hi! I hope you and Chase had a great Thanksgiving. I've been catching up on all your recent posts. Everything looks so good.

I just made (and posted about) your apple butter -- it's fabulous! And so easy. This will definitely be our yearly apple butter recipe! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I think the avocado is perfect for this dish. Yep, Santa must bring me V-con for Christmas!

I think you made a good call - pintos are much better than black beans. I've been on a pinto kick for months.
