Serves: 2

Total time: 

  • 1 large Acorn Squash, Sliced in half with seeds scooped out
  • Water
  • 1-15oz. Can Pinto Beans
  • 2 Tbsp. Red Onion, Diced
  • ¼ Cup Green Onion, Diced
  • 2 Small Roma Tomatoes, Diced
  • 1 Cup (packed) Spinach, Arugula or Kale, chopped
  • 1 tsp. Hot Sauce
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Place the acorn squash halves cutside-down in a large baking dish, poke a couple of holes in the rind with a fork and fill the baking dish ¼” high with water. Bake for 40 mins or until the squash softens.
  2. In the meantime, toss the rest of the ingredients together in a bowl and let sit until the squash is done baking.
  3. Once the squash is done, take it out of the oven and flip the halves over.
  4. Carefully, pour the filling mixture inside of the halves, and they may overflow just a little.
  5. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for an additional 10-15 mins. Serve warm, and if you like, with more hot sauce!
