This vegetarian meal is simple to make and will please the whole family. Start by peeling the squash and removing its seeds. Then cut it into small cubes. In a bowl, combine the cubes with the taco seasoning. Spread the cubes out onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 350 for about 25 minutes until golden and soft. To quickly heat your tortillas, simple wrap them in some aluminum foil and bake in the oven at 350 for about 8 to 10 minutes. Then place a small scoop of the seasoned squash onto each tortilla and add the toppings of your choice such as avocado, spicy mayonnaise, cilantro, cheese, etc.

Bonus: for a quick and delicious spicy mayo, simply combine some mayonnaise with a bit of sriracha hot sauce and lime juice. The more sriracha you add, the spicier it will be!

These delicious fritters are perfect for serving with salads and stews. Start by halving and removing the seeds from the squash. Then cook on a baking sheet in the oven at 350° for 40 minutes. Once the squash is ready, use a fork to scrape the flesh away and let it cool. In a bowl, combine the shredded cheese, egg, a spoonful of flour, the squash, and breadcrumbs. Add salt, pepper, and other spices such as cumin or garlic salt if you want. Shape the mixture into patties and cook in a pan with a bit of olive oil - two minutes on each side should be enough. You'll then have delicious fritters ready to be devoured!

This easy recipe idea is perfect for getting rid of leftovers! You can make your stuffing using sausage or even rice, ground meat, and other vegetables (bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, onions, etc.). Slice the acorn squash in two. If you have a turban squash, you need to remove the top. Empty the squash and bake in the oven on a baking sheet at 350° for 40 minutes. As the squash bakes, cook the sausage meat and onions in a pan. Once the squash is ready, add the sausage mixture into the squash and top with shredded cheddar cheese. Place the stuffed squash on a baking sheet and cook for about 10 minutes at 350° or until the cheese has turned golden brown. Bon appétit!
