Whew! What a title!! My dear friend Danielle posted earlier today about a jalapeño popper Casserole using spaghetti squash. It may have been one of the most glorious dish I’ve ever seen! As soon as I saw it I knew it would be in my belly by the end of the day.
1 spaghetti squash
4oz cream cheese
Diced chicken (roughly two cups)
Jalapeños (amount to your liking)
1 cup shredded cheddar
Start by preheating your oven to 400. Cut you squash in half, long ways and place cut side down on a greased baking sheet. (I like to use bacon grease on mine, it gives it an UHmazing flavor). Cook your squash for 50 mins! When it’s done scrape out the halves with a fork and add to a baking dish.
Lower oven temp to 350. Mix in your cream cheese, egg, salt and pepper, chicken and half of the cheddar into the squash. Stir until creamy. (It helps to beat the egg first before adding it). Top with remaining cheese and jalapeños! Bake for 35 mins; broil for 2 mins at the end.
It is so hard to describe the flavor of this dish. It’s a combination of Mac and cheese, a pot pie and jalapeño poppers. It just too damn delicious for a description!!!! Just try it! I promise you will love it! ❤️️
