  • 2 delicata squash sliced in half and seeded
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef or ground bison, or ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup sweet onion chopped
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup water

For the toppings:

  • salsa
  • 1/2 cup green pepper diced
  • guacamole


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place the halved and seeded delicata squash face up on the parchment and drizzle with a little olive oil. 

  2. Bake the squash at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until tender. 

  3. While the squash bakes, place the ground beef and onion in a skillet. Cook over medium heat until it is browned and cooked through. Drain off any excess grease. 

  4. Add the spices, tomato paste, and water. Stir and cook over low heat for a few minutes to let the flavors combine.

  5. Once the delicata squash is done baking, remove from oven and fill with the taco meat. Return to the oven and bake for 10 minutes. 

  6. Serve the taco boats topped with green pepper, salsa, and guacamole.
