  • 1 medium to large acorn squash
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 1 lb ground chorizo chicken or pork
  • 2 eggs


  • Cook Squash according to directions on squash. (Preheat oven to 350F. Roast face up on an oven safe pan until tender, about 30 minutes.)
  • While the squash is cooking, sautee onion in avocado oil on medium high until translucent and tender, about 3 minutes.
  • Add meat and brown all the way through.
  • Remove squash from oven, use a towel to help handle it (or let it cool if you have the patience). Scoop out the squash from the shell leaving 1/2 inch layer to keep shell from breaking. Mix the squash with the meat mixture and divide among the shells.
  • Optional: Crack an egg on top of the mixture and bake another 20 minutes. (PS Don't over bake like I did. Baked eggs look like they aren't set when they really are. Poke at them to be sure!)
