Delicata Squash Taco Bowls

I’ve teamed up with Simply Organic this week for a little fall twist on #tacotuesday with these chipotle delicata squash taco bowls. I invited everyone over for a little DIY taco bowl action. My friends and I are still digesting the abundance of Thanksgiving, so a lighter and more nourishing bowl of taco inspired flavors just felt right. I am obsessed with chipotle seasoned everything (in case it wasn’t obvious).  I honestly throw this Simply Organic ground chipotle on everything, it has the perfect blend of smokiness and heat, and whenever I’m at a loss cooking wise, I sprinkle some of this magic in the mix, and I can rest assured I’m going to end up with something satisfying.

Although Thanksgiving has passed, we are still right in the thick of the (sometimes stressful) holiday season. All the more reason to get together with loved ones and take some time for #organicmoments in the kitchen. Simply Organic is hosting the ultimate #thursdaymoments giveaway (click here to read more), they are giving away ridiculous prizes every month during the holiday season- including a $5,000 Thursday bash for you and your loved ones.

Chipotle Roasted Delicata Squash: 

Ingredients:

  • 2 delicata squash (sliced into 1/2 inch rings)
  • 1-2 teaspoons chipotle powder (depending how spicy you like it)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, avocado oil or grapeseed oil
  • 1 red onion (thick slices)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

Directions:

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Next, slice your delicata squash and red onion and throw them into a bowl. Add all of your spices and oil and toss everything together to evenly distribute. Add squash and onion to a parchment lined baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes or until the delicata squash looks browned and almost caramelized.

Assembling your bowl:

The remainder of your bowl ingredients are optional, but these are a few staples that I highly recommend:

  • sprouted brown rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice
  • lime wedges
  • spicy slaw or kraut
  • chopped cilantro
  • sliced radishes (pickled or raw)
  • pickled onions
  • thinly sliced jalapeños
  • chopped romaine lettuce
  • avocado or guacamole
  • pico de gallo
