  1. Combine turkey, salt, garlic powder, chili powder, smoked and sweet paprika, cumin, coriander, oregano, chipotle pepper, cinnamon, cloves, and apple cider vinegar in a mixing bowl. Mix well. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour for flavors to blend.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Cut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds and brush cut sides with olive oil. Place squash cut-side down on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Roast in preheated oven until squash is soft, 40 to 45 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.
  5. Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chilled chorizo mixture. Cook and stir, breaking up lumps, until cooked through and browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Add onion and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until onion becomes translucent, stirring constantly. Add garlic and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in chili powder, salt, and cumin.
  6. Stir in beans, corn, diced green chilies, and tomatoes; cover and simmer 4 to 5 minutes.
  7. Fluff spaghetti squash strands with a fork, keeping them in the shells.
  8. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  9. Divide sauce among 4 squash halves. Top each half with 1/4 cup of cheese. Return to baking sheet and bake until cheese is melted 5 to 6 minutes. Garnish with fresh cilantro.

Excellent. Followed the recipe as instructed. My 13, 11 and 10 year olds all loved it as well!!

Salt is a bit excessive so we cut it back to 1/4 tsp it was perfect.

Great recipe! I I used the whole can of corn and the whole can of beans and a whole round onion. More veggies, less meat. Next time I won’t add cinnamon or cloves. Personal preference, gives it ...

This was very easy! If you’re one who likes this type of seasoning, go to Emeril’s chili recipe for his “essence”. It’s pretty much the same seasoning and I always have a batch on hand. I’m vega...
