Are you following the Omni Drops Program or another low-carb diet and wondering what you’re going to enjoy on Cinco de Mayo (May 5th)? This recipe is phase 3 friendly. I love Mexican food and have really missed eating it while following this plan. Last week a friend of mine shared this recipe with me and I knew I had to make it. If you haven’t tried Spaghetti Squash yet, you must. I love it and it’s a great alternative to spaghetti or just any carb in general. In this dish I layer the spaghetti squash, taco meat, tomatoes, onions, peppers and pepperjack cheese. Enjoy and please let me know if you make this and what your opinion was. I love comments. 🙂

- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the spaghetti squash on a cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for about 15 minutes or until it's cool enough to handle. Cut the squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Using a fork, shred the squash into threads that look like spaghetti.
- Cook the ground beef in a pan until browned. Add in the taco seasoning and 1/4 cup of water. Mix well and remove from heat.
- Layer the squash, taco meat, tomatoes, onions, peppers and cheese. Top with Cilantro (optional)
