  1. Make 1-inch deep punctures all over squash with a serrated knife. Microwave squash on high for 6 to 8 minutes; turn over and microwave until squash is steaming and cooked through, another 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, cut in half lengthwise, take out seeds, and shred the flesh with a fork.
  2. Mix fresh lime juice, chili powder, ground coriander, ground cumin, and coarse salt in a large bowl. Add shredded spaghetti squash; mix well.
  3. Place black beans (heat if desired), crumbled queso fresco, chopped red onion, and chopped cilantro into separate bowls. Heat corn tortillas in a skillet over medium-low heat until warmed and flexible, about 30 seconds per side.
  4. Spread each tortilla with a spoonful of black beans and squash mixture, and a sprinkling of queso fresco cheese, onion, and cilantro; top each serving with salsa.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Red onions can be cooked in a skillet with a little vegetable oil if preferred over raw.

Great vegetarian alternative for tacos! My partner (a meat eater) also loved them. We also added sour cream and ate them with cheddar cheese and they turned out great.

Best. Tacos. EVER.

I especially loved that the squash made the tacos much lower in calories - as opposed to using meat. We like it spicy so we used a little hot sauce on top. Hubby thought it needed more cumin b...

These were delicious, even without the cheese. I put some chipotle pumpkin salsa on top, which tasted great.
