BBQ Burrito Bowl ft. Squash

Thank you to everyone that visited the Art-A-Whirl event last weekend. We had a great time talking with all of the visitors that stopped by and meeting some new friends. This is one of our favorite events of the year because we can come together with other Minneapolis local makers and artists. Our next event stop will be the Stone Arch Bridge Festival June 16th and 17th.

This week's recipe features a food, in our opinion, that is highly underrated: the squash.

Ingredients:

 One spaghetti squash (Shown above is the butternut squash)

Two tbl spoons olive oil

Sea Salt

Two cloves garlic (Be adventurous and try it with Black Garlic North America black garlic!)

1/2 pound ground beef or chicken

One can of black beans

One can of corn

1-1.5 cup of cheese (We enjoy sharp cheddar or mix a few types)

3/4 cup of Classic Triple Crown BBQ Sauce

Optional:

1/2 Onion - Diced

Black Pepper

Cilantro

 

Instructions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees f

2. Cut squash in 1/2 (vertically) and coat inside with oil and modest amount of salt

3. After pre-heating, place squash on a baking sheet and bake for ~40 minutes. The inside of the squash should be tender and easy to peal

4. While the squash is cooking (about 1/2 through), begin filling mixture

5. Cook the beef/chicken and after cooked through, add other ingredients to the skillet except the cheese

6. After the squash is cooked, add the mixture to the "bowl" of the squash. Top your dinner bowls with cheese and replace in the oven until the cheese is melted
